Derek Atchley ’10

How did you choose your area of study?

“I am studying neuroscience because my entire life I have been fascinated by how the mind works and what happens when those systems go awry. My career plan is to pursue a PhD in behavioral neuroscience and continue doing research. What I enjoyed most about studying neuroscience at Lake Forest College was the small campus environment with all of the resources of Chicago for research.”
