How did you choose your area of study?

Growing up I knew I was interested in Biological Sciences; I just was not sure which program I would choose. Things became clearer when I took a class on “Making sense of Aging” which spiked my interest in molecular biology and all the things a human brain can do. I chose to pursue Neuroscience because it connected molecular mechanisms with physical Biology of how the brain works. Neuroscience program at Lake Forest College provides hands on experience by allowing students to work with professors doing research and preparing students for the real world. Plus I find that learning how the brain works, how diseases develop, and how to fight them endlessly fascinating.  This is why I plan to pursue Biomedical Engineering after graduating because I think it is a field that has a lot of potential and fascinating discoveries.
