What I love most about UHP

I love the University Honors Program because it gives me an opportunity to expand my knowledge outside of my major. It allows me to explore things that I probably wouldn't even consider if given the chance. It's a place for me to be myself. Build connections and make new friends.

Favorite honors experience

My favorite honors experience so far has definitely been UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS! Dr.McGee has been the best professor I have ever had. This honors seminar gave me a chance to discuss topics that were considered "closed door" conversations for so long. It was a safe atmosphere for me to speak my mind, and debate with my peers on various topics. This seminar had nothing to do with health sciences whatsoever, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Best UC moment so far

My best UC moment so far has been getting accepted into the university honors program! I think this has been the best opportunity thus far and has opened many doors like... Working in UC's neuro-recovery lab, being a part of a team who formed the first UC Pre-PT club, and so much more. Not to mention being here at UC I met my best friend Ariel (hey girl!).

You can't complain about how much you have on your plate when the whole point is to eat.

What's next?

 Honestly, I don't know. I do know I will be applying for graduate school this year. I will be continuing to lay the foundation for my club. I will be trying new things. I will be enjoying life. 

What's next? Making the most out of this year!
