    Fatima's Bio:
    I’m a junior majoring in Biochemistry and Biology. I love being involved on campus. Our community is welcoming and full of opportunities for everyone. I’m the co-president of our school’s Amnesty International chapter, and the Editor in Chief of The Cable, the school newspaper. I tutor and mentor through Student Support Services. I am also a Chemistry lab and Dignitas teaching assistant. I’m very passionate about human rights and never afraid to be myself. I find that I am able to freely express myself through the activities I’m involved in.

only a few weeks left of summer?!

As summer quickly comes to a close, I’m getting stressed out about starting classes and extracurricular activities again, but excited, too.

Since I’m a Biochemistry major, I’m taking Calculus based Physics and Biochemistry this year. I’m nervous for both! From what I’ve heard, they’re both difficult courses.

Our Honors program at CSS offers some of the best classes (in my opinion) in the entire course catalogue. This fall I’m enrolled in “The Psychology of Belief”, which explores why humans believe what they do spiritually. I’m very excited for that one. I’m also enrolled in two Honors book clubs with Sister Edith Bogue; in these courses we only meet once to discuss the book we all read, but discuss it regularly online. One of the things I love about Honors is exemplified in these Book Clubs; the freedom of the instructors to format their courses makes for an interesting mix of projects, grading policies, and discussion formats. Each course is a little bit different!

This year I’m starting as a research assistant with one of the Biology professors. I’ll be working in her on-campus lab a few hours a week, and am very nervous but looking forward to it- our individiual schools (like School of Biology, School of Nursing, School of Business, etc.) really try hard to provide individual students with wonderful opportunities like this research to help improve their resumes.

I’m excited for school to start… it’s always interesting to see the dynamic all the new students add to the campus!
