Hanna Jandrain attended both the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design and the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences to complete her bachelor's degree in biochemistry, an intercollegiate program. Jandrain was accepted to and has chosen to attend the WVU School of Pharmacy this fall.
The Martinsburg native plans to pursue a pharmacy clinical residency after earning a doctor of pharmacy degree. She hopes to have a career as a director of clinical pharmacy or clinical pharmacy research.
Why did you choose to attend WVU Davis College?
I chose to attend WVU Davis College because it offered me the opportunity to be in the intercollegiate biochemistry program. Through this, I have had opportunities to build relationships with professors and students in both the Davis College and Eberly College, which provided a multifaceted education.
What was your most valuable experience at Davis College?
My most valuable experience at the Davis College has been having Dr. Cassandra Lamb as a professor and mentor. She offered me an extremely hands-on biochemistry lab experience as a junior and has given me great advice when planning for my future.
What advice do you have for current Davis College students?
Take advantage of getting to know your professors outside of the classroom and get involved in research! Research is an experience I recommend at least trying once because it supplements classroom education by providing a hands-on application.
What advice do you have for high school students?
Before entering college, take some time to reflect on your personal scheduling habits. You decide how you spend all of your time in college, so it is important to be able to plan your time wisely and strike a balance between school and non-school activities.
