How did you choose your area of study?

My philosophy in life has always been “knowledge alone isn’t power, applied knowledge is power.” After seeing the dedication of my professors, the academic rigor, the high expectations, and the competitive and collaborative environment at Lake Forest College, I know that being a biology and neuroscience double major will provide me with knowledge in areas that have always interested me. The opportunities available here will allow me to apply my knowledge as an undergraduate working in a research lab along with being involved in internships and other experiences. The challenging curriculum will prepare me well for medical school and a profession in the medical field. I know I will be equipped with the essential skills to question and also find answers to the unknown and hopefully make contributions to the constantly growing field of science.
