Getting into veterinary school is no small feat. Lauren is grateful she’s had so many opportunities to bolster her credentials at North Central College.
The biology major has performed research with faculty members, been an active member of the student-run Pre-Health Organization and studied a wide range of sciences to prepare for the next stage of her academic journey.
Her professors have been there to assist her every step of the way.
“They really make you feel comfortable about approaching them with questions, and they’re really passionate about the subject matter of their courses—it shows in their lectures. The labs in the sciences particularly immerse you in the subject matter, preparing you for real-life applications in grad school and careers,” she says.
Lauren chose North Central because of its strong science reputation. The College has lived up to her high expectations.
“It’s provided the solid foundation I’ll need in graduate school,” she says.
