The most surreal part of this experience is that down the road, some of the research I have done could possibly lead to treatments for people that are affected by these bacteria, which is mainly people with cystic fibrosis.

Alexander Albright, Biology ’20

Without the extra push from W&J, I would not have prioritized an internship as highly as I did. This allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and have great experience. I know I’m working toward what I want to do.

Julia Plasynski, Biology ’20

Dr. Kuo was adamant that being a well-rounded individual with experience in many fields and the ability to problem solve would be critical for our future. She was right.

Brooke Shuck, Business Administration, ’20

Thanks to the broad range of classes I’ve taken at W&J, I felt like I was greatly prepared to embark on this trip. I believe this trip has helped guide me by pointing me toward a field I might be interested in.

Ben Heim, Psychology ’21

I credit this opportunity to Dr. DeBerry and her class during JayTerm that helped tremendously with applying to science-related internships. I highly recommend it to all future students who are interested in finding a science-related internship.
