Emily Ina '21

Neuroscience major

By combining a liberal arts education and professional preparation, Mount Union has helped me in getting a diverse education that I would not be able to get anywhere else.

Road To Mount Union

I heard about Mount when a flyer came in the mail. I loved all of the purple around campus, so I knew I had to visit. Later, I was awarded the Presidential Scholarship which took away all of the financial stress that comes with choosing a college and allowed me to see why Mount Union is the place for me.

Neuroscience

Ever since I was little, I have always been fascinated by the brain and all the structures within it. As I have gotten older, I have become more interested in studying the reason behind why people complete certain action and studying how brain differences can impact people.

Other Fields of Interest

I have developed a new interest of criminal justice. I plan on using this interest along with my neuroscience major to study criminology after graduation. I discovered this through my professor Dawna Wensel. Her experience as a police officer allows her to share unique stories and relate real-life scenarios to the concepts we learned in criminal justice.

Exceptional Academics

By combining a liberal arts education and professional preparation, Mount Union has helped me in getting a diverse education that I would not be able to get anywhere else. The liberal arts education has allowed me to take classes outside of my major that have opened my eyes to the overall purpose and impact of many topics. Mount Union offers several tools to help in professional preparation including mock interviews, job fairs, and much more.

Campus Community

From the moment I stepped foot on campus it felt like home. The people here are genuine and radiate positivity in everything that they do, making it easier to be away from home. The small campus size and the friendly attitude of the people here make it feel like a family.

Helpful Professors

One of the things I have come to like the most about Mount Union is the dedication that the professors have to teaching their students. One of my favorite professors, Dawna Wensel, has influenced me greatly on my path to success. Most importantly, she understands the stress of being a student and takes the time to listen to her student’s concerns. She has a lot of office hours and is always willing to meet with her students to help them in any way that she can.

Career Goal

My ultimate career goal is to become a physician assistant and then join the Global Red Cross to help heal people all over the world. Mount Union’s rigorous coursework has prepared me to handle any situation that I may be thrown in Graduate School. Mount Union has also prepared me by making connections in my field and work hands on with the Mount Union’s Physician Assistant Program.
