“We got the sense that the best way was to study to understand it from our own interests as scientists. And that’s what I do now in my other classes–study as a scientist, to learn because of my interests and to put that information into the things I already know. It was a message that that’s important, and you can keep it in mind. It inspires you.” — BIOL 106 Student
