Last summer I did an internship at the Dolphin Conservation Center in
Marineland Florida. Spending the summer working with dolphins made me
realize this was the career for me.
I am glad I chose to major in biology. The classes are challenging but I'm certain the material I learned will help me in the future. For example, during my internship, one of the dolphins had a viral disease and one of the trainers was explaining how viruses work and I knew exactly what he was
talking about having taken Microbiology!
Many of the biology classes are heavily lab-based as well, which I enjoy. We learn many lab techniques and are given many oppurtunities to perform experiments and
calculate results. We are also able to conduct our own experiments.
I've grown a lot since freshman year and now am looking forward to a future in marine biology. The biology program has provided me with a good foundation to be successful with my future goals.
