Student Profile

The Committee on Admissions seeks to build a diverse class to meet the broad and disparate needs of the local, national, and international communities. Our new class is not only varied by educational experience, geography, age, race, and ethnicity, but also by experience and talent.

Students from our entering class participated in medical missions across the globe, tutoring, mentoring, and coaching, all intending to serve others. Several have served in AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps. Students in the entering class have been involved in the health and patient care fields as licensed emergency medical technicians, translators, nursing assistants, researchers, public health educators, and scribes, to name a few. Some have pursued careers in the military and teaching. They also excel in non-academic areas, including various athletics, music, art, dance, and beekeeping talents.

How will you contribute to this diversity in the future?
