Allison Fox '13

I'm a second-year, majoring in biomedical humanities (the accelerated program).  For now, I plan to minor either in physics or music.

I chose Hiram because of the three year program. I investigated similar programs at other institutions, but no other program had a hundred percent placement into top choice schools, or as low of a dropout rate. I also loved the proximity to home and the way faculty seemed to really care about the students and their education.

I have been able to go to the faculty of the Center for Literature and Medicine for advice on everything, from scheduling concerns to using a kitchen because I love to cook.

My favorite course so far at Hiram has been my freshmen colloquium.  It's an intro to college writing course, so there is a lot of writing and a lot of reading, but it's all approached from a biological and scientific point of view.  I also like that everyone in the class is a first year student, so you share a lot of the same experiences and are able to talk about them with your peers.  I also love that even sharing these common experiences together; we all have a different interpretations and different meanings we take away from these experiences.

After graduation I want to go to medical school and receive an M.D. degree.  I hope to become an endocrinologist or nephrologist.
