Olivia Nelson

Biochemistry Peer Mentor

Hello, my name is Olivia Nelson and I am a junior majoring in Biochemistry with a minor in Psychology. Upon graduation, I hope to pursue a graduate degree in Forensic Science. This summer (2022), I worked at the National Student Leadership Conference as a Team Advisor for the Forensic Science program where I led a group of high school students through a nine day summer intensive workshop. Outside of academics, I am the Opinions Editor for the Collegiate Times, the student-run newspaper on campus. My advice to incoming students is to find the time to do the things you love. College can be overwhelming, and it is important to prioritize other interests outside of classes!
