Biology Major
Doylestown, Pennsylvania

The biology program is such a fascinating program. The professors teach us science with a biblical perspective, as well with a secular perspective, so that we can learn the differences. Mrs. Wright places so much time into her students, and she’s determined to help each and every single one of us. Being in this program has supported me in wanting to achieve my dream of going on to medical school to become a pediatrician.
