Nothing like starting the day with an experiment. Amino acids and dialysis this morning.
Whitney plans to specialize in pulmonary medicine, and she feels that WPI’s project-based curriculum gives her a huge head start for med school. “I’ve learned to work with so many different personalities and take on so many different roles here,” she says. “I’m prepared for anything you can throw at me.” Whitney also took her first trip abroad to work on an Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) with the MarViva Foundation in San Jose, Costa Rica. “We gathered important data to help sustain Costa Rica’s marine life, and I had the chance to use my Spanish for the first time outside the U.S.”

Biochem 2 lecture. More amino acids. I understand our lab results much better now.
Lots of good options for lunch, but I must have the vanilla ice cream cookie sandwich for dessert.
Great discussion on financial aid policies at CAO (Committee on Academic Operations) meeting.
Just enough time for dinner before Dance Team rehearsal. Perfect way to end the evening.
