"I chose Rider University knowing I’d find amazing opportunities. I’ve spent three years in Rider’s research labs studying with Dr. Druckenbrod and Dr. Stratton. I am also a part of the esteemed Ronald E. McNair Scholars program. With the guidance of those mentioned, I was accepted to a full summer research experience for undergraduates at Cary Institutes."
