NSU Experience

The biology program at NSU provided me with the foundations to continue with graduate school in the life sciences. What I like the best was the accessibility of the professors. Many of them gave me opportunities to spend summers or entire semesters in their labs learning about the research they did. However, my most valuable experience was meeting outstanding women in science and education that were were important role models to follow. Having someone to look up to is very important, and having the opportunity to see those hard working women having successful careers, beautiful families and prosperous futures was inspiring. My professors at NSU changed my life.
