What’s your favorite class? How has it expanded your knowledge?
Intro to Psychology with Jolina Ruckert. This class expanded my perspective of and interest in the field of neuroscience. The brain is such a complex and interesting part of the human body that fascinates me. This class has allowed me to view aspects of the world in a different manner.
“I immediately felt welcomed into such a loving and caring community.”
Who is your mentor on campus? Why do you consider this person your mentor?
My mentor on campus is an upperclassman named Matthew. I consider him my mentor because he has had experiences at Lewis and Clark College as a person of color and as a first-generation student that I could relate to.
What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?
When I came for a fly-in visit of the campus, I immediately felt welcomed into such a loving and caring community that I knew I wanted to be a part of.
Why did you choose to do the Xplore program?
I felt like Xplore would provide me with the necessary connections and tools I need to excel as a STEM major.
What was the best thing about the Xplore program?
The best thing about Xplore was being able to build a community of friends and familiar faces on campus before classes started.
