    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Hands-On Microbiology

Petri dish testing for antibiotic resistance in microorganisms

Petri dish testing for antibiotic resistance in microorganisms

CSS is a very tight-knit school. My biggest class this year has 24 students in it. The biggest class I’ve ever had at CSS, which was during my Freshman year, was my general biology lecture that had around 40 students.

In my microbiology class there are 15 students. The lecture professor is also the lab instructor. This means that the professor knows exactly what is going on in both the lecture and the lab and can coordinate lab activities and lecture plans seamlessly. Having a tiny lab also means that the professor is always there to answer my countless questions.

My favorite question in lab is “Can you look at this?”

My second favorite question in lab is “Does this look right?”

And my professor is always there to make sure I’m doing everything the way I should, which helps tremendously when it comes to answering lab questions on the tests. I’m a very hands-on learner, so taking labs where I get to prepare my own petri dishes is amazing. I don’t just look at pictures in textbooks of how to test for antibiotic resistance in microorganisms, I get to test it myself.
