What are some of your favorite academic memories?
I enjoyed working with my fellow students and working in study groups, taking turns tutoring each other in subject we struggled with. The faculty held us to a very high standard and it wasn’t as fun, but it’s funny looking back now.
What are some of your favorite social memories?
I was very active with organizations outside the nursing college. I was head of the student union program committee, for which I organized a number of campus events, such as concerts and speakers.
