A visit to CSE’s campus sealed the deal for Tara Hibbett, biology major from Oxford, N.J.

“I was planning on going to a different college until I visited CSE’s campus,” said Hibbett. “After visiting, I changed my mind and am happy with my decision.”

Hibbett, who just completed her freshman year, lives on campus and is historian for the biology club, and is scheduled to be a student ambassador next year. “I’ve come a long way this year, “she said. “It’s not like high school; it took me a while to get adjusted…This year there were challenges and accomplishments, but I am excited to return next year.”

Hibbett has her sights set on becoming a doctor. “I knew I liked biology from the time I was little, being here reinforced that.” she said. “There were times this year I doubted myself and questioned my abilities in this field. The support and guidance I received from the faculty here opened my eyes to my true capabilities and potential. I was able to excel in my courses with confidence and success while also exploring opportunities of academic and personal advancement.

“I hope to go to medical school,” she concluded. “Biology is my passion.”
