It’s Never Too Early to Build Your Résumé!

  Networking session in the Munnerlyn Atrium, Goergen Hall. Orientation week has been crazy—you’ve met so many people (and you’ve forgotten most of their names), you haven’t slept more than four hours per night, and classes are looming around the corner.

I love meeting new people and getting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences. I am still on schedule to intern this summer at a biomedical engineering company, but budget[…]

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!

As a senior, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been asked what I’m doing next year. Everyone’s curiosity has only increased as we get closer and closer to graduation, but I still have the same answer: I’m spending the summer in Rochester for an internship, but I’m still waiting to hear back[…]

Reflections of a Summer Research Internship!

Before high school, I was never exposed to the scientific world of research. I’ve been learning the sciences for as long as I remember but there was no research involved. My first introduction to scientific research was when I began college as a freshman. Everyone was telling me how the U of R medical centre[…]
