"I am so happy I joined the LHC family during my sophomore year -the LHC made me realize I wasn't just a face in the crowd and that college wasn't just academic--it's building relationships, challenging yourself and surrounding yourself with people who believe in you." ~ Madelyn Aittama,B.S. in biomedical science, minors in dance, psychology and chemistry, 2017, summa cum laude. Honors thesis: "Implementation of a Biology Summer Bridge Program for First-Year Biology Majors".
