Congratulations to March student of the month, Madalyn Fields!

“Madalyn is an academically gifted student and this month was accepted to The Ohio State University’s PhD program in Biomedical Sciences. The program is highly competitive and provides both a tuition waiver and a graduate student stipend. Beyond this, Madalyn has earned a near perfect academic record while being a captain of the Women’s Lacrosse team. She’s also presented microbiology research completed at CUAA at Michigan State University’s MidSURE conference (virtually) on two occasions, most recently this past summer. Madalyn has been a recipient of CUWAA’s Undergraduate Research Grant as well as being a dedicated student worker and peer tutor through the ARC while at CUAA. Madalyn exemplifies the best aspects of CUAA students and is a worthy recipient of this award as her time at CUAA comes to a close.” —Faculty Nomination

These college years go by quickly. Get involved, try new things, make memories, and reach out for support when you need it.
