Which Honors professor has made the most impact on you?
"I have completed research through the lab of Professor M. Christina White. My work in this lab has been the single most influential thing I have done in my time here, and I have learned an incredible amount. She has supported me in every aspect and encouraged me to grow into a confident researcher through my time in her lab", says Andria.
