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.” 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. In between her sophomore and junior year, Sabrina gained invaluable experience as an intern at Virginia Urology working in their pathology lab. Last summer, Sabrina completed one-on-one 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 figuring out my future career plans and helped me with countless internship and graduate school applications,” says Sabrina, who is originally from Richmond, Va. After she graduates from Loyola in the spring, Sabrina plans to apply to graduate programs in cell biology and pharmacology and pursue a doctoral degree; she hopes to eventually launch her career in the research and development industry.

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.
