Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose UMR because it offered the perfect combination of a high-quality health care education and a smaller student base. UMR's Health Sciences program offered a health care-centric education that allowed me to pursue a wide variety of opportunities after graduation. I also knew with a smaller student base there would be more 1:1 time with both my peers and professors, and it was important to me that I got to know the people I was going through my undergrad experience with.
What did your Capstone Experience at UMR involve? My Capstone involved taking business and health care administration courses through obtaining an Applied Business Certificate and taking courses for two semesters at the University of Guam.
