Why NMHU: The professors and Academic Advisors! They take time to get to know your personal goals and career goals and create a well-lit path of achieving them. I loved the events on campus and had lots of fun living in the resident halls. I also enjoyed how research-based Highlands University is. I conducted pertinent research in each lab, and had the opportunity to do 3 internships. I also was really involved in clubs on campus. My favorite clubs were the chemistry club and the international service group because we did community service and outreach.
