Brianna knew she wanted to pursue a career in optometry after working at an optometrist’s office in high school. She’s been tracking toward that goal with pre-optometry and health science opportunities at North Central.
Through the student-run Pre-Health Organization, Brianna shadowed an optometrist and North Central alumnus to observe firsthand the work of optometrists. She’s also worked with the College’s pre-professional health advisor to design her studies and prepare for optometry school.
“My advisor has been helpful every step of the way, telling me things I need to do and how to get there.”
The courses are tough, says Brianna, but they help prepare her for optometry school. “The science classes are more challenging than I imagined, but the professors here really want you to go the extra mile to get you where you need to be.”
