About me: My interests and hobbies are conducting research in a polymer science research lab, the beach, reading, traveling and volunteering at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport on weekends.
The Honors College benefits me in various ways. I love the small classroom sizes in my honors classes. This definitely has allowed me to develop stronger relationships with my chemistry and calculus professors. I also will forever be extremely grateful for the kindness and helpfulness of the Honors College. If I am ever in a bind or have no clue where to even begin to look for certain information about our campus, I can just email the Honors College, and they will respond within the same day with an answer or who to contact to receive an answer. I most definitely would not be as productive and efficient in my everyday tasks if it were not for the Honors College. After my undergraduate studies, I plan on enrolling in a medical school towards a M.D./Ph.D. If it was not for the Honors College creating these small classroom sizes, I most likely would not have such a passion for chemistry or want my future career to be science-related.
