Independent Student of the Day

I am a senior Biology Major with a Health Studies concentration at Kalamazoo College. Some interesting things I have done during my time at Kalamazoo College include: I studied abroad as a junior in Quito, Ecuador for six months, where I lived with a host family, took classes, and travelled. Some of the highlights of the experience were spending two weeks in the Amazon Rainforest and two weeks on the Galápagos Islands doing biology research. I did a week-long externship during the summer of my sophomore year, where I lived with a K alumn who is a family practice doctor. I was able to observe him in his medical practice and learn about the career options in the medical field. On campus during my time at K, I have been involved in a variety of things including the Student Activities Committee, and service-learning both at a bilingual elementary school in the community teaching a healthy cooking class, as well as working with elementary school girls and helping maintain their interest in the science fields by doing weekly science experiments. I am also a Resident Assistant in a first-year residence hall, and a tour guide on campus.
