"As a current graduate student pursuing a doctoral degree in physical therapy, I constantly find myself saying a silent "thank you" to my BSC professors for preparing me for the next leg of my academic career. My biology classes at BSC not only gave me a strong base of knowledge from which I’ve been able to build, but they also, and perhaps more importantly, taught me how to be an engaged student—and for that, I am eternally grateful."
