Impactful mentors

“Drew professors helped me on my journey by supporting me on a professional, academic, and emotional level; specifically professors like Tammy Windfelder [associate professor of biology]; Paris Scarano [lecturer in biology], and Peggy Kuntz [professor of art history]. I am not sure what I would be doing without their endless support and inspiring advice throughout my four years here.”

Finding a passion

“Without my amazing professors, I would have never found my passions in animal behavior, conservation, art history, or history, as I came to Drew knowing I wanted to major in science, but not much else.”
