Student — Medical Laboratory Science
Why was SEMO a smart choice for you?
SEMO was an affordable option which offered many different options for a major including my current major.
What is it that you feel sets SEMO apart when you were making your college decision?
SEMO was the perfect size school for me. I wanted something bigger than my home town of 100 people but not be just another number or face in the crowd. SEMO offered the size to have great opportunity, while still knowing my faculty and staff.
What is your major and how do you feel that program is preparing you for a successful career?
I study Medical Laboratory Science, and SEMO did a great job preparing me for my clinical rotations, which I am currently undertaking at Mercy St. Louis. As a student I have already had many job offers, and I do feel like SEMO was one my keys to a successful future.
Do you have a scholarship?
If you have a scholarship, how will your scholarship from SEMO help you graduate with less debt and what will that mean for your life after graduation?
