Neuroscience Declaration Day
Neuroscience Declaration Day on October 7 was about getting to know the program, faculty, and alumni. Seven alumni returned to speak on a panel about how the major prepared them for their careers and/or graduate school: Kayla Ahlstrand ’12, Daniella Brutman ’12, Abbey Pipkorn ’10, Madhavi Senagolage ’12, Natalie Kukulka ’13, Silvia Skripkauskas ’04, and Sydni Cole ’12. Students had the option of declaring a major in neuroscience after learning about the incredible opportunities and diverse range of careers that employ this discipline.
