Ready to Help Every Step of the Way
“Ashley Ross (UE senior admission counselor and transfer coordinator) was a huge help every step of the way. Every time I needed help, I went to Ashley and she answered all my questions and made my transition so easy.”
William Storm Poser
Class of 2021
Major: Neuroscience, psychology, and biology
Honors Program student
A School with a Lot to Offer
After Storm Poser earned his associate’s degree, he knew he wanted more academically. He began searching for just the right university where he could pursue a higher degree. During his research into potential colleges, Storm came across UE and was impressed with what it had to offer academically.
“UE has good a cognitive science program, and not many schools have a program in that area,” he said.
An Easy Transition
Transferring to the University of Evansville was a smooth process.
“Ashley Ross (UE senior admission counselor and transfer coordinator) was a huge help every step of the way,” said Storm. “Every time I needed help, I went to Ashley and she answered all my questions and made my transition so easy.”
Storm is something of a renaissance man at UE. He’s taking harpsichord lessons and has learned the tango as a member of a ballroom dancing group. He is the Student Government Association representative on the Resident Student Association executive board. He’s also president of AXON, a neuroscience club that has the goal of fostering awareness of mental health issues and brain sciences.
Opportunity to do Research
Storm is participating in several research projects, including professor Cris Hochwender’s experiment to measure the effects of the pawpaw tree’s overabundance in Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve. Storm will also be involved with professor Lora Becker’s upcoming study to monitor the heart rate and temperature of people while they sleep and correlate the data to depression.
Just Getting Started
Storm doesn’t plan to stop his education once he’s earned his degrees from UE. His plan is to go on and earn a PhD and MD in a dual program and perhaps be a research physician. He is interested in researching such areas as neurochemistry, biological computation, virology, learning disabilities, autism, and mental health issues.
