Hey! My name is Katie. I was born in Flint, Michigan. I went to Davison High School where I was very involved in student council, National Honor Society and French club; I was also a member of the varsity soccer team. I graduated in 2011, which now makes me a sophomore at the wonderful Western Michigan University!
While pondering my college choice my junior year, I decided that I wanted to attend a university in Michigan to stay relatively close to my family and friends back home. This narrowed my decision to a handful of colleges to visit. While on my tour at Western Michigan, I felt an awesome vibe from the students and faculty around me and loved the city of Kalamazoo as a whole. After further research on the awesome programs at WMU and an invitation to the Lee Honors College, my mind was made up: I was destined to be a Bronco. I am a biomedical sciences major with minors in chemistry and philosophy. I chose to study these subjects, because my ultimate goal is so be admitted into medical school with a MD/PhD program.
There is so much more to college than attending to obtain a degree; college is a time to meet lifelong friends, get involved with the community, and explore your passions. Here at Western Michigan, I am a member of the Lee Honors College, an executive board member of the American Medical Student Association, a senator in the Western Student Association, a volunteer for Drive Safe Kalamazoo, and an avid intramural soccer player. I also am involved in microbiology research under Dr. Docherty, which has been an amazing experience. Currently, I am living on campus for the second year in a row... and loving it! WMU offers single rooms at the price of a double for second year students who achieve over a 3.25 GPA, thus I took advantage of this opportunity. I would highly recommend living on campus for at least one or two years, because of the location convenience and the opportunity to meet awesome people.
