Since 2011 College Communications has produced a unique homepage each weekday to spotlight the rich diversity of Haverford's academic programming, extracurricular offerings, campus culture, and community members' accomplishments.
“I‘m excited for a career that will constantly challenge my understanding of biology in a context that I find completely rewarding and beneficial to society,” she says. “I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to complete my undergraduate education at Haverford, where I was able to prepare for vet school by gaining a general literacy in STEM fields, learning the necessary skills and concepts, while also becoming more competent in academic spaces that are not restricted to my biology major.”
Not every undergraduate has their independent research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), but Caleb Mayer '18 is one of the select few. The mathematics major and psychology minor spent a summer studying mathematical models for how different types of cancer cells respond to various treatments, thanks to the NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. When it came time to design a senior thesis project, he knew he wanted to do something similarly interdisciplinary, building on his cancer cell models.
