I have just finished up my first set of veterinary school finals at the University of Illinois. I can say with confidence that the University of Evansville provided me with a strong foundation to help me succeed in the rigorous curriculum. My foundation of knowledge I gained in undergraduate school really prepared me to take on these classes and course work head on. Most of my first quarter material was review to me, with a few exceptions such as anatomy. I scored very highly on my first quizzes and exams.
While at UE, I was challenged both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. I had professors who pushed me to not only gain knowledge from their lectures, but also through labs and projects that expanded my knowledge of any given subject. Working through challenging classes helped to give me both the tools to work through classes and clinicals, and the discipline it takes to get through vet school. My classroom experiences as well as my clubs and organizations also taught me how to be self-motivated, a servant leader, and an androgogic learner.Samantha Peery '17
