NSU Experience

Coming to NSU my first year, I was not the most effective "studier" in my opinion, nor did I demonstrate much affinity towards learning in the traditional fashion, via lectures, reading, or taking notes. At this time I was unaware of the vast trove of study techniques that some of the best and brightest minds across the world use today. My mentors in the Biology program were some of the first individuals who motivated me to step away from my comfort zone and experiment with different avenues of learning. As I became more aware of techniques such as spacial repetition or the pomodoro method, my confidence in my own ability to learn grew exponentially. The faculty wasn't just knowledgeable; they were approachable mentors, always ready to guide and inspire. The hands-on experiences in labs and research projects were pivotal in developing my practical skills and fueling my curiosity. To current students, especially those with dreams of medical school, my advice is to embrace the journey. Balancing academics with other pursuits and community involvement is more than just a checklist—it's a blueprint for personal growth. Remember, resilience, adaptability, and a true passion for helping others will be your greatest allies on this rewarding path to medicine.
