Major: Spanish and Biology
Saginaw sophomore Elizabeth Curtiss isn’t just taking notes about biology concepts at Alma College. Through her gene and cancer research with Eric Calhoun, assistant professor of biology, she is working with the real thing.
“If I’m having a bad day, I love going to the lab and focusing on this one thing I really, really enjoy for a few hours,” she says. “Learning about biology is so interesting to me, and I learn even more when the concept is right in front of me in the lab.”
Curtiss hopes to combine this passion with her love of her other major, Spanish, into a career as a bilingual physician.
