2002 Major: Biology

How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"Being a biology major at Duke gave me a great science foundation before I went to veterinary school. I not only learned about biology but also gained essential skills in research and writing that I still use today."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Biology programs? 

"Take advantage of the amazing opportunities that Duke Biology offers. Don't narrow your focus early on to what you think you want to do - you never know where life will take you."
