Veronica R. Martin

Class of 2020, Biochemistry and Biology (dual major)

"One of the most enriching experiences I had at UToledo was the UToledo-Salford Exchange program. I studied for a year in Manchester, England. I engaged in therapeutic-based cancer research under the guidance of a faculty member at the University of Salford. It also didn’t hurt that I managed to visit over 20 countries! This rewarding experience allowed me to explore so many aspects of myself, in addition to experiencing the impact of science around the world. The research I have completed for my honors thesis and my course work have inspired me to pursue a Ph.D. in Chemistry at UToledo."

Rohan Rahatgaonkar

Class of 2021, Math and Physics (dual major)

"The UToledo physics department has a lot of professors in diverse, research-intensive fields and also telescopes and a planetarium, which is uncommon. I wanted a university that was big, so I can make a lot of friends and participate in many organizations, but not too big, so I can have one-to-one interactions with my professors, the ability to make an impact and a holistic education. I have been doing research since my sophomore year, which enabled me to get out of my comfort zone, to think innovatively and intern at Tata Institute for Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai."

Ysabelle Yrad

Class of 2020, Biology - Ecology and Organismal

"Through the Jesup Scott Honors College, I had the opportunity to study conservation ecology when I traveled to the Galapagos islands. I enjoyed participating in environmental stewardship programs on campus as well. I helped develop a new native garden outside of Carlson Library. As an education and outreach intern at UToledo’s Lake Erie Center, I shared my enthusiasm for ecology with many people. I am also grateful for the opportunity to present my work internationally, as a finalist for the Biodesign Challenge in NYC."
