NSU Experience

The biology program at NSU was an excellent stepping stone on my path to bigger things. I was granted so many opportunities that would otherwise not have been so accessible at larger institutions. My junior year of college I started doing foundational research at an outside lab associated with NSU. I learned the nature of scientific research and acquired skill sets necessary for critical problem solving and reasoning. After I graduated, I realized that I wanted to continue challenging my mind and decided to pursue research full-time. The best thing about NSU is the small class sizes and the ability to really connect with your professors. If it wasn't for them, I would not have learned about the many opportunities that I undertook that got me to where I am now.
