Class of 2020
Biology major with an emphasis in ecology
Having a big school but with a small town atmosphere. I liked the small class sizes to get to know professors, but yet still be able to experience all sorts of research and other academic opportunities. I think the hands on experiences that I've been able to gain in biology have been invaluable.
We've done stream projects, working with benthic macroinvertebrates to measure stream quality. And then we've been able to go out down the ravines on campus and look at different tree species in the flood plains and up land, so very unique to be able to do research right here on campus.
So CHAARGE stands for Changing Health Attitudes and Actions to Recreate Girls. It's a fabulous opportunity for girls to get to meet each other on campus, and creating a healthy lifestyle that you'll have in college and then beyond.
To be a Laker means to be involved and active in your communities.
There are so many ways to learn, grow, get new experiences here, so being a Lakers just to step out and take those. I'm Madalyn Slubowski. I'm a biology major, I'm an explorer, I'm a leader, and I'm a Laker.
