“Aside from providing a great foundation of scientific knowledge, Austin College set me up for success in my career by teaching me how think critically, analyze situations, and understand ideas rather than just memorize facts. Keeping a focus on ‘thinking’ rather than ‘knowing’ is what set me apart; that mentality, developed at AC, is ultimately what helped me achieve my goals.”
