Nicole's Thoughts on Texas State
I would like to become a pediatric oncologist.
It is hard to pick between two professors, so I will mention both. I met Dr. Shirley Ogletree my freshman year when I worked for the Department of Psychology. Since day one, she amazed me with how sweet and caring she is to all those around her. I enrolled in one of her classes, and I was also her teaching assistant, so I had the opportunity to develop a close relationship with her. I have never met a professor more willing to help her students. She is an independent, hard-working woman who has always gone out of her way to guide and support me in my career at Texas State.
Another fave professor would have to be Dr. Chad Booth. I never thought I would enjoy organic chemistry, but he has changed that for me. I don’t think I have ever bothered a professor with so many questions, and he has always taken the time to answer them without any complaints. Dr. Booth has also given me advice about medical school, and I appreciate the time he has taken to help me succeed in and out of the classroom.
Best Studying Advice
Everyone has different study habits, and I change mine according to the class. Some classes require substantial reading and writing, others practice problems, and some you can just go over your class notes. Study a little at a time, and don’t cram the night before. Cramming all the information the night before a test is definitely stressful and makes you sleep deprived.
