Vanderbilt's a research-intensive school with a great biology department, which gives me an opportunity to prepare myself for a career in research. Plus, I heard so many great things about it from older students, especially about the warm and welcoming campus and the loads of opportunities.
Describe a favorite activity/organization and why you like it.
I am in the 2017 cohort of MLC's Lanterns, and I enjoy it so much. It's so much fun and so enlightening to listen to other international student's stories and how they've experienced Vanderbilt, as well as have an outlet to express myself as well.
Describe a favorite class and why you like it.
My current favorite class is Neurobiology of Behaviour. I took it last semester, with Dr. Kenneth Catania, and I learned so much - I am now full of interesting facts about animal behaviour to tell people! It's also given me insight into a whole new area of biology, which is very fascinating to explore.
