Why I chose Union:
Union College was not on my radar until the beginning of senior year. My guidance counselor brought it up to me because of the Posse Foundation Scholarship and I was attracted to the neuroscience major, as well as study abroad and volunteer opportunities. Upon acceptance, I visited campus and loved the welcoming environment and small classes allowing students to truly get to know their professors both inside and outside of class.
Rennes, France in Fall 2015
Professor Christopher Chabris – All of his real life examples of various aspects of neuroscience raised my interest, confirming what I want to study.
“Introduction to Cognitive Neuroscience” – It was my first neuroscience course!
Any exercise from dance to strength training to spinning
Favorite place on campus:
The Nott – I can study in the third floor quiet space and I've sat there for some memorable speakers during my time here.
Favorite local restaurant:
Zen (Asian cuisine)
Favorite food on campus:
My day is always made by fresh vegetables and fruits in my salads and sandwiches from O3.
