According to Keona Thompson, there’s a lot to like about UW-Parkside:
strong Pre-Health Program;
diverse student population;
small class sizes; and
lots to do.
“I chose UW-Parkside because of its Pre-Health Program,” she says. “I like the fact that my instructors are accessible, they are easy to reach and they are always eager to help.”
Besides the challenge of a highly regarded academic program (93 percent of UW-Parkside pre-health graduates who apply to medical school are accepted–the national average is less than 40 percent) Keona has found plenty of opportunities to be involved outside the classroom. She is a member of the Pre-Health Club and has served as club treasurer. She is active on the UW-Parkside Higher Learning Committee, is a Parkside Student Government senate representative, and is a member of the UW-Parkside Segregated University Fee Allocation Committee, and the Budget & Review Committee.
“This university offers a lot more than just an amazing Pre-Health Program,” Keona says. “It's a great place to earn a variety of highly relevant degrees. Plus, UW-Parkside provides incoming students with the opportunity to choose from a wide range of student organizations.”
