A bonus perspective: Since graduating, and since moving away from Reno – I have come to realize how much I absolutely adored my entire experience in Reno. I miss living on-campus and watching the newest episodes of American Horror Story each week during my freshman year. I miss staying up all night studying anatomy models with my peers in the KC. The pandemic hit right around junior year, so I felt that my “college experience” was taken away.
All of this goes to say that when I (hopefully) begin medical school, I hope to be much more conscientious and appreciative of every day I get to spend in my future school and hope to make the most of these experiences!
Where I’m at/plans: I am taking some gap time to work in clinical research for the Cleveland Clinic and will apply to medical school next cycle!
Jayde Powell is from Las Vegas, NV and studied Biology and Psychology with a minor in Addiction Treatment at UNR. In the Honors College, Jayde served as the Honors Ambassador Corps Service Chair, a Retreat Leader, and the MPO Assistant Coordinator. Here is what Jayde remembers most fondly from her time at UNR: “Being a TA for Dr. Hinitz brought about some of my favorite memories with the teaching team. I first took his class as a sophomore, and had the most insightful and unique lessons in my entire college career. Once welcomed to the teaching team, I was able to bond with my pears and learn from Dr. Hinitz for the next two years. We had movie nights, holiday parties, rock climbing socials, and even went jumping in Farad! Being a part of this team was one of the most meaningful things in my life – I met some of the most genuine, down-to-earth humans and I miss them all very dearly.”
