Sydni Cole ’12
How did you choose your area of study?
I am studying the connections between brain, mind, and behavior because I have a fascination with the interactions between the physiology of the brain and the psychological aspects of behavior. I love the interdisciplinary approach that the neuroscience program has because it allows me as a student to have a broad understanding of the brain biologically, psychologically, and philosophically. I am not entirely sure what my career plan is, but I’m pretty sure I want to work in the health sciences. I love the personal attention I get from my professors at Lake Forest College and their genuine want for me to learn and grow both as a student and as an individual.
