Brittany Rowe

“I knew North Central was research-heavy and had connections to other places and opportunities but didn’t know much more,” says Brittany, a transfer student.

She was quick to get involved, however, in research and student organizations. During summers and D-Term, Brittany conducted research with a biology professor and presented her work at a national conference. She also served as an officer in the student-run Pre-Health Organization and as historian for the biology honor society Beta Beta Beta. She mentored other biology students and worked as a lab assistant in science classes.

Her goal after North Central was to pursue a doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) degree and she’s enrolled at Des Moines University, a medical school in Iowa.

“I definitely feel prepared. They say medical school is fast-paced, but the sciences at North Central are already fast-paced. I’m not worried.”

Brandon Wood

Brandon chose North Central because he felt a small-school atmosphere would set him up for the greatest amount of post-college success.

“It was clear there were endless opportunities here,” he says.

As an undergraduate student, Brandon has conducted and presented independent research, kept up with the latest trends in dentistry as a member of the student-run Pre-Health Organization and worked with professors as a lab assistant. He calls the relationship between North Central students and faculty the College’s “biggest asset.”

“We harbor a family-like atmosphere,” he says. “The professors are here to help you, and allowing them to get to know you as a person will really help in the long run.”
