Ethan Suding (2015)
My biology and chemistry professors are always looking to get students in the lab to help with research, no matter what the scale ... Last summer made me realize there are a lot of research opportunities out there. I plan to do more research the rest of my time here at Miami.

Lauren Porter (2014)
Now that I'm about to graduate, I feel a lot different than I was freshman year. I was very shy back then, but now I'm more confident, I've made really great connections and long lasting friends, and I have the knowledge and confidence to succeed in my field of study.

Elizabeth Duskey (2014)
Nearly all my favorite courses at Miami have involved research in some way, even ones outside of math and the natural sciences ... It's fun to spend the whole time working on problems that apply to real-world situations ... In these classes there's only a thin line between our coursework and actually using math and science to work with real clients.

Ashley Gordon (2015)
Last year I really enjoyed my ecology and environmental science classes. I got to know the professors and found a lot of value in the discussion format ... This past semester, I took a capstone course ... This class really helped me understand the importance of communicating scientific information with the public and was very rewarding because I had the opportunity to be a part of making something that will positively impact the local community.
