Overall I could not be more satisfied with my college experience at the University of Scranton thus far. I am recieving a quality, liberal arts education consisting of excellence and creative learning. Scranton's mission urges service to others and "magis," which is one of the many reasons i love my school. The community of students and teachers is helping me become a better student and preparing me to be a succesful, caring occupational therapist one day. I have had so many great service opportunities and experiences at Scranton that make my school feel like a second home. There are many school spirited events and whether it is attending these events, going to basketball games, or doing interesting group projects and papers for class, I would not trade the experiences I made at Scranton for anything. Our school is unique for its unyielding love and support for being men and women for others and reiterating the Jesuit values. I owe it to Scranton for helping me discover the person I truly want to be, a person who serves others and gives back to the world we live in. I would not choose a different school if I had to do it all over again. In fact I almost did not choose Scranton and I am overjoyed and thankful everyday that I did. I could not be happier for what Scranton has provided for me and I look forward to the years to come. I could not be prouder to say I am a Royal!

I have had an internship with a local medical college and absolutely loved it! Although I've had experience working on campus, I haven't had an internship on campus. I found out about the health professions internship with the medical college through my University however, and it was an amazing experience. Participants completed research projects, shadowed Doctors at local hospitals, and attended workshops and lectures over the weeks. I also co-organized a Community Health Fair. There are many ways to find an internship suitable for you in Scranton. The professors, upperclassmen and advisors are more than willing to help!

I am a biology major/ pre-med track and am currently starting to apply for medical school. The past two and a half years have flown by and I have learned so much from my professors and mentors. Besides taking the required courses, such as Organic Chem, Physics and Bio with labs, I chose to take other Science Courses as well. My favorite was Comparative Anatomy lab because I simply love dissecting! I did very well in the lab which earned me a teaching assistant position. I also scored an internship at a medical school over the summer and enjoyed every second of it. The days were long but the experience was unforgettable! My program allowed me to shadow a doctor, organize a community health fair, spend a day in the Gross Anatomy lab, mentor high school students, and research community health. This experience helped me solidify my career goals: to one day become a doctor, establish programs in my community to better the health of residents, and maybe even open a clinic in another country. I believe my university has helped me grow as a biology major and a person. I am concerned about the application process, as medical school is extremely competitive to get accepted to, but will try my best to succeed!
