Sabrina has loved her science-focused liberal arts education, which she says has allowed her to learn about a wide range of topics. “I have been able to branch out and learn so many interesting things that extend to philosophy, history, sociology, art, and psychology,” says Sabrina, who grew up in Richmond, Va. A Haig Scholar, Sabrina is a member of Loyola’s women’s soccer team. She is also involved with the Chemistry Club, Barbell Club, and several academic honor societies including Phi Beta Kappa, Tri Beta, and Chi Alpha Sigma. During the summer between her sophomore and junior years, Sabrina gained invaluable experience as an intern at Virginia Urology working in their pathology lab; last summer, Sabrina completed research as a Hauber Fellow with Christopher Thompson, Ph.D., associate professor of biology. “Dr. Thompson has been a supportive and helpful mentor since I was a first-year student. He has guided me through defining my future career plans and helped me with countless internship and graduate school applications,” says Sabrina, who will begin the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program at UNC-Chapel Hill next year. She hopes to eventually launch her career in the biotechnology/biopharmaceuticals industry, potentially in research and development.

My favorite thing about Loyola is the faculty-to-student ratio. Being able to get to know and connect with my professors is one of the most unique and valuable aspects of a Loyola education.
