What are your plans for after graduation?

Being the chartering president of my fraternity was definitely the highlight of my career here so much work went into it and it was awesome to see it final come to fruition. Fall semester during finals week myself along with my entire apartment and a bunch of my friends got incredibly sick and were throwing up all day. It made for a great human physiology final.

What advice can you give to those not graduating?

Get involved in as many things as possible. Get a job or an internship and just do things. Oppurtunities present themselves to people invovled in things don’t just sit back and wait.
