Sophomore Year Comes to a Close

That’s that. I have completed my second year at Vanderbilt! At 5:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon, I finished my Intro to Biological Sciences (BSCI 110B) final which marked the beginning of summer!  This morning I packed up my remaining belongings and left for my hometown of Auburn, Alabama.  While on the road I began to mentally compile a list of some of the things that I got involved with during my sophomore year at Vanderbilt.

Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) and Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) doctor shadowing program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) was one great experience I had this past year. I was able to shadow a resident physician of neurology throughout the year which exposed me a professional medical setting.

Service, service, service. I really enjoyed working through Vanderbilt Student Volunteers for Science (VSVS) and Alternative Spring Break (ASB) during my second year. Along with friends, I was part of a VSVS team that volunteered in local Nashville metropolitan schools that taught science lessons to sixth graders. Through Vanderbilt ASB, I spent my whole spring break in Greenfield, New Hampshire working on a medical rehabilitation campus. I can’t wait to take part in these activities next year as well.

This past semester, I accepted a research position in a lab in the Biological Sciences (BSCI) department for the summer. I am really excited about the opportunities ahead of me for the summer.

That’s all for now! I’ll be blogging over the summer so I’ll be sure to update everybody soon!
