My favorite thing about BYU has been the people I've met, in my wards, classes, and work. I've been able to find good people everywhere, and without them I would have enjoyed my time at BYU significantly less.
What was the best learning experience you had?
I'm not sure I could pick one; there have been many classes I've sincerely enjoyed, both in my major courses and in my general classes. Some of my favorite learning moments were from my humanities classes, learning about art and culture and seeing their influence throughout the years. I also just loved my Neuroscience classes, learning about the brain and behavior and seeing how it applies and affects the lives of everyone around me. My ASL classes were also among my favorites ever taken.
What/Who are you grateful for as you reflect on your college experience?
I'm very grateful for the many friends I've made of course, in wards, classes, and work; the friends I've made that I will not soon forget, and will always keep in touch with. I'm also grateful for many professors who love what they teach and are very good at it: Rebekka Matheson, Steven Charles, Nanette Hix, Michael Call, Jaren Hinckley, Jennifer Nielson, Michael Brown, Chad Kennedy, Laura Bridgewater, Garrett Cardon, Mike Brown, Paul Larsen, and many others. They have made my education.
I have been the incredibly grateful recipient of a full-tuition scholarship every year I've attended BYU, which has changed my life. I also loved taking classes not strictly required by my major, such as ASL, Communication Disorders, and World Religions; those have kept things interesting and really broadened my appreciation for the world around me, and those of different cultures.
What's next for you?
I've been accepted to the University of Utah Master's of Biomedical Engineering Program, and I'm excited to start that this Fall!
