I have spent my entire adult life at NSU. I moved here after high school when I was accepted in to the dual admission BS/DO program and I can truly say that it is the best decision I have made. At NSU, I matured into an adult and learned lessons in both the classroom as well as outside of the classroom through my extracurricular experiences. I learned the most while taking the higher level advanced courses such as Neurobiology, Microbial Pathogenesis, and Immunology—I highly recommend that anyone pursuing Medicine or a related field take these higher level courses. Building a relationship with a professor is also of the benefits of going to a private school like NSU—take advantage of it! Take the time to get to know your professors—go to office hours, drop a phone call or send an e-mail. It is the people at NSU that make it such a wonderful institution of learning and the reason why I am pursuing my third degree here. Get involved with independent study, even if you do not end up publishing your research it is an amazing learning opportunity. Learn how to write a grant if you have the time. Organizations such as TriBeta, the Biology Honor Society, offer opportunities to do so and there is also a grant locator in the Alvin Sherman Library. Get a leadership position—experiences like this allow you to network and take your undergraduate experience to new heights.
