Were you surprised by anything in the program?

The accessibility of the faculty-I have developed some relationships that I believe are on the same level if not better than some of the relationships I built with faculty in my undergraduate, on-campus program.

Any advice for prospective students?

Stay up on reading, don’t hesitate to ask questions if unclear and be sure to check the Student Portal often-there are some great opportunities showcased there!

Do you take classes primarily online or on-campus?

I prefer online, because it is much more flexible with my schedule and I can do things (relatively) on my own time.

Extracurricular activities:

Work, read for leisure, yoga/Pilates, travel

Career objectives:

To teach at a university, conduct research and consult for public health agencies.
