Cassandra (CAS ’17)

Hello! I am currently in the College of Arts and Sciences majoring in Biology with a specialization in Cellular Biology, Molecular Biology, and Genetics. I am a Health Leads Advocate and volunteer every week at the Boston Medical Center. I am also an active member of BU’s Global Medical Brigades and Film Society. Some of my favorite hobbies include filmmaking, collecting vinyl, and playing the ukulele and violin.

I am absolutely in love with the Kilachand Honors College. Not only has it allowed me to venture way beyond the usual, science-oriented constraints of the pre-medical track, but it has also given me a great community of students to associate with at BU. Thanks to KHC, I’ve discovered passions past science (e.g. art and film) that I had never realized existed within me before. If you have any questions about KHC, feel free to send me an email and I’d be glad to help!
