After a full year in the Biology 1406 class, I’m so glad I got this opportunity. Allow me to list Three Things That I Think I Thought about This year…
1. What a great group!
I absolutely loved getting to know everyone in the class – there’s only been a few times in my life that I’ve been part of a class where everyone (literally, everyone) was excited about the subject matter, extremely quick to pick up the material, and always willing to go the extra mile. This was by far my favorite class peer group of my freshman year.
2. Doing real science
While my friends complained about dissecting rats and memorizing the names of fungi, I had the chance to participate in truly novel research that has significance to science. Furthermore, I actually had the opportunity to work on an independent research project!
3. A true challenge
More than any other class, this class made me really work for my grades and I appreciate that very much. Dr. Adair and Dr. Gibbon made this class interesting and challenging, difficult but also engaging.
