“I chose Elizabethtown College because of the friendly atmosphere, well-recognized biology department and the opportunity to join a collegiate softball team,” she said.

A well-rounded student, Heather participates in several campus programs, clubs and teams. She plays collegiate softball for the Elizabethtown Blue Jays, tutors and is a member of Tri Beta, the National Biological Honor Society. She is also minoring in Spanish. As a member of the Biology Department, Heather was surprised to find herself conducting research within her field. She enjoys it and says she is looking forward to more.

“I would recommend E-town because it has a strong Biology department, the food is great and the students and faculty are very friendly and helpful,” said Heather. “The professors are highly accessible outside of class and encourage outside-of-class interactions. “

Aside from the helpful professors and the opportunity to play softball, Heather also loves being a part of the community, as a whole.

“My favorite part about campus life is the comfortable environment and the small school atmosphere. I am familiar with a lot of people on campus when I walk to class or when I am in the Baugher Student Center,” she said.
