Biology Major (BS), Class of 2024
I am really excited for this Biology Mentoring program. I am on the Pre-Med track and hope to become a Pediatrician later on. I attended these meetings last year, and I joined as a mentor this year because I wanted students to have the same academic opportunities I did. I believe that I can help some of these students achieve their goals and learn to love learning, especially about Biology.
Pharmaceutical Sciences Major, Class of 2024
I am from Hazlehurst, MS, and I hope to do pharmaceutical research or drug compounding once I graduate. The biology mentoring program provides students with techniques and skills to perform better in not only Bisc 160 and 162 but other classes as well. Being a mentee last year (and now a mentor) has helped me feel connected to the Biology department, as I get to form connections with biology professors and students. This program has taught me leadership and study skills, and I love getting to know students and helping them in the best way I can.
Biology Major, Class of 2024
I wanted to be a mentor this year because of the impact my mentors last year had on me. I knew how much they helped me through Biology 160, and I wanted to do the same for others. Being a mentee as well as a mentor has helped me become more involved and informed not only in the biology department but on campus as well. I hope to go to medical school after graduating.
Biology Major, Minors in Chemistry and Society & Health, Pre-Med Track, Class of 2023
My name is Lily Snow and I am from Olive Branch, Mississippi. I am a member of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA), Gemma Beta Phi, Omicron Kappa Delta. After graduating I plan on going to medical school to become a doctor. My main career goal is to open my own clinic and provide health care to those in need.

Pre-Pharmacy Major, Class of 2023
During my time at UM I’ve become involved with the EE Pharmacy program, HOCO, an AOII, and am currently president of The Epilepsy Connection. I absolutely adore this campus, and my favorite place to study is the HOCO porch. After graduating from UM I hope to attend UMMC’s professional pharmacy school and to eventually work in nuclear pharmacy. An interesting fact about me is that I am obsessed with dinosaurs and will accept any dinosaur jokes or items you might find. I became a biology mentor to help students like myself who struggled with adjusting to a college study schedule and lifestyle and would love to pass along the lessons I learned!
Biology Major, Chemistry Minor, Class of 2024
I am on the Pre-Med Track hoping to go to UMMC. I love being a biology mentor because I can help kids that are truly trying to learn and offer them valuable insight.
Pharmacy Major, Early Entry Pharmacy Program, Class of 2024
I am from southern Illinois. This is my first year as a biology mentor. I think the mentor program is a positive program because it helps build connections with other peers and allows you to receive study tips from actual students.
Biology Major, Minors in Chemistry and Psychology, Class of 2023 Hopefully I will go to medical school after I graduate. I’ve been involved in the Biology Mentor program for two years and was in Biology Bootcamp my freshman year. I’m involved in many organizations including AMWA, AMSA, Tri-Beta, and the Honors College. I hope to go to LSUS for medical school and become a pediatrician in my hometown in North Louisiana.
