Why you chose Tech: I loved the small campus and all of the outdoor activities that the Houghton area has to offer, like the Tech trails for hiking and exploring.

What does your future hold: I plan on graduating from Tech and completing a CLS practicum at a hospital. From there, I plan on working in a hospital lab diagnosing patients with cancer and other illnesses based on tests on both cells and blood.

Advice for transfer students: College is all about balance. It's important to study, but it's also important to take breaks and have a social life. Get involved with one of the many student organizations on campus. It's a great way to meet new people who enjoy similar interests.
