Meet our Students and Graduates
Hear straight from students just like you. Or read stories from successful alumni who'll tell you just how far a degree in biology can take you.
Most would agree that Dillon Warr '16 left his mark on Susquehanna. He was valedictorian of his class and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in biology. Now, just a year after graduating, Warr is making his mark on medical school.
Kaity Ronning '15 is now studying the interplay of retinal function and neuroinflammation in health and disease in the neuroscience graduate program at the University of California, Davis.
What an extraordinary summer Noah Diaz-Portalatin ’17 had at Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo, working as an intern with wild animals.
Senior biology major Austin Grubb had an illuminating summer—literally. Grubb spent his summer at the Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography trying to determine how light affects diatoms.
As an intern at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Matthew Chrencik benefitted from some opportunities usually only afforded to medical residents.
Two summers of research at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine have helped Heather Mentch, a rising senior biology major, decide that a career in research is for her.
Jacob Brittingham '14 previously taught biology for grades 6-11 and ran the drama club at New Life Christian School. Today, he is pursuing a doctorate degree in molecular, cellular and integrative biosciences at Penn State. He is also involved with the State College Community Theatre.
The best part about my majors is seeing the crossovers, like how the top layer of soil affects the life above it and the pollution that flows downstream affects the surrounding organisms. At Susquehanna, I get a broad picture of the world around me.
Though a biology and philosophy double major may seem uncommon, Julia Tolin ’18 says she has found that countless students double major in these fields.
