What do you like most about being an Honors student?
My favorite thing about being an Honors student is being part of a community that shares my values, drive, and dedication towards my studies. Honors students as a whole showcase a wide range of majors and career paths, so the community is a great way to meet many different kinds of people while having that common denominator of being a committed student.
Leadership and involvement at STATE:
I spend most of my time on campus within the Honors community or in the Science building. I am currently an active member of ISU’s Pre-Medicine Association, the TriBeta Biology Fraternity, and the American Chemical Society. For the Fall 2019 semester, I will be taking over as the lab technician for ISU’s Paleolimnology Lab and a Chem-105 supplemental instructor. When I’m not doing homework, I’m in the lab doing research in characterizing new diatom species or in training for physics research with one of the professors on campus. In addition, I am also a 2018 University Honors Scholar.
What advice do you have for incoming Honors students?
I would advise incoming Honors students to throw caution to the wind and not worry about the things that held them back in the past. When you come to the Honors College, you have an opportunity to be whoever you want to be, no matter who you were or where you came from. Make the most out of your education and your time with us and you’ll reach your fullest potential.
