Michelle investigated all that North Central’s math department had to offer before she declared her major. “Having a close relationship with my professors helped me find just what I was looking for,” she recalls. “Professor (Linda) Gao told me about the applied math major and I realized that’s what I needed for working in a business setting.”

Michelle appreciates the major’s focus on solving real-life problems and looks forward to studying econometrics, which uses statistical methods and empirical data to test economic models. “Applied math is perfect for me,” she says. “Plus I can still consider graduate school in statistics or economics down the road,” she says.

Nancy Peterson, professor of chemistry, noted research can be lonely and slow-going at times, so students and faculty involved in SURC meet weekly to collaborate and discuss their work.
