My Alma education

The small class size allowed me to really get to know my professors. They knew what my end goal after Alma was and did everything they could to help me get into medical school. My advisor helped me select classes that he knew would make me a strong applicant for medical school. Being able to do research and presenting it to faculty on honors day isn’t something you can do in a large university. Alma helped mold me into the person I am today. And for that I am thankful.

My favorite place(s) on campus included

The area between Mitchell hall and Gelston hall. Used to play fetch with my dog there every day.

My favorite professors(s) included

Dr. Davis, Dr. Anderson, Dr. Luetkemeier, and Dr. Beckman 

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

My game winning dunk in my last collegiate basketball game against Kalamazoo. All of my friends that were there on the sidelines to support myself and the rest of the team is something I will never forget. Having the student section storm the court and picking me up and putting me on their shoulders is something every kid growing up dreams about.
