Why CSB/SJU? I chose to study pre-med in a liberal arts context because there is a lot more to medicine than science alone. It has given me the chance to explore other interests and gain exposure to different fields, which have broadened my perspectives of medicine. I also think it has made me more well-rounded.

Why CSB/SJU? With CSB/SJU's core curriculum rooted in the humanities and theology I believe all students are set up to succeed in their desired field. During my time here, I've had the opportunity to conduct research at Colorado University School of Medicine on interferon signaling and the role this plays in cancer development.

Why CSB/SJU? I believe that being immersed in a well-rounded curriculum taught by excellent faculty leads to preparedness for anything, including medicine. Additionally, taking a variety of classes that demand more than a few good test scores has helped me tremendously. In some cases the most difficult classes are also the most helpful.
