Loyola’s Jesuit liberal arts education is helping Caroline, who is focused on becoming a physician assistant, form a well-rounded approach to thinking and problem solving. “Often times health care industries look to treat symptoms, focusing only on the disease at hand. A Loyola education, and a Loyola student, sees beyond that,” says the Honors student from Long Island, N.Y. “My goal is to treat the patient, focusing on what is best for everyone’s entire well-being.” Caroline is double majoring in biology and classical civilizations. Through the Pre-Health Program, she is on the pre-physician assistant track. She cites Maiju Wetzel and Joe Walsh as two compassionate faculty mentors who have helped her succeed at Loyola. “Dr. Wetzel’s support through the Pre-Health Program has never wavered as I discerned my future profession and took the next steps on my undergraduate journey. Her commitment to my aspirations, wealth of knowledge about the medical world, and constant positivity is a true testament to Loyola’s value. And from the beginning of the Honors Program orientation, Dr. Walsh has been dedicated to my growth as a student—and as a person.” Caroline serves on the Honors Program student council, Ad Honorem, and as a lector for Campus Ministry. She is on the executive board of the Pre-PA Society and further involved with Health Outreach Baltimore, the Pre-Health Society, and Doctors Without Borders. She also enjoys playing intramural volleyball.

In looking for a college, I wanted a place where I would be able to challenge myself academically but also an environment that would allow me to grow on a spiritual and personal level. Loyola is the best of both worlds.
