What I love most about UHP

UHP is an inclusive program based on experiential learning opportunities that allow you to step out of your comfort zone and allow you to better yourself. UHP provides numerous possibilities for you to find what you are truly passionate about and then guides you towards those passions.

Favorite honors experience

I have done a self-designed experiment focused on the mental health of our current nursing students and what they do to keep up with that. It was a very surreal experience to just be able to create a project of my own and have it be about something that I am deeply passionate about.

Best UC moment so far

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of the events at UC to pause, however, even amongst the restrictions UC managed to continue to host numerous activities in a virtual format. My friends and I often attended virtual dance workshops. Even with it being virtual, it still managed to be a very fun time!

Broaden your horizons and don't be afraid to do things that make you step out of your comfort zone. This is a great opportunity to experiment with your passions.

What's next?

After graduating I hope to take my certification exam and work as a nurse while pursuing a Master's degree in Nursing. I hope to work in a clinic someday as a nurse practitioner.
