The biology program at NSU prepared me for my career by providing me with the foundation for the rest of my educational experiences. The classes I took in the biology department were directly related to classes I would take in the future in order to become a dentist. Even now, as a resident, I come across articles about things I learned about during my undergraduate education. One thing I liked best about NSU was the small size of the classes. I felt that this increased my learning experience and really made my whole experience more personal. Some words of wisdom for current students: take advantage of the wonderful professors you have and learn as much as you can from them.
