NSU Experience

The biology program at NSU is challenging, yet equally rewarding. I had the opportunity to make lifelong friendships at NSU and get to know many supportive faculty and students, of which I am still friends with today. I was involved in several community service projects throughout South Florida representing NSU. These projects helped me realize the importance of giving back to the community and how gratifying it can be to share my passion of science with elementary students through a program that became very close to my heart "Science Alive!".

As a biology student I was able to create a solid foundation in the field of science, which prepared me for the academic and clinical aspects of dental school. I learned valuable skills, such as: effective studying, how to work under pressure, and the importance of balance.

My words of wisdom for all current students is: do not lose sight of the end goal, whatever it may be. It is easy to obsess over a low test score, never ending lab reports, and endless amounts of studying. However, always remember that even though the path you are on is long, it is extremely rewarding. With hard work, persistence, and determination anything is possible!
