Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Student (Summer 2020)
"My 2020 REU experience was truly unforgettable. While we were going through a worldwide pandemic, I still got the chance to interact with others. Though I was devastated we wouldn’t be able to meet in person, I was honored to have a chance to meet my CRIP REU class.
Meeting on BlueJeans, a video conferencing platform, every week with different seminars was truly remarkable. I was able to gain connections with graduate students who provided me with advice for a dual program of Public Health and Physician Assistant. I am very grateful to be a part of this family that constantly looks out for one another.
I was able to escape the reality of the difficult times and learn new skills and attributes that I could apply to my personal and professional life. I truly felt a sense of belonging. I would like to thank Carol Murray, Tom Seacrist and Dr. Flaura Winston, and the mentors and staff for making this all happen."
