Katharina Dubyk, Biology ’18
After my four years of education at Ithaca I hope to attend optometry school and eventually open my own private practice.
Andrew Rodenhouse, Biology ‘16
Shadowing experiences in the last year have strengthened my will to become a doctor. Upon shadowing, doing research here at Ithaca, and conversing with doctors, I know that a career in medicine is right for me. At this point, I do not know what specifically I would like to practice, but I have some ideas. Surgery has always been a fascination of mine as I love fixing things and working with my hands.

Environmental Studies senior Erika Bucior was awarded a Fulbright to spend the 2016-17 academic year studying an invasive plant species in Tinidad and Tobago.
The Fulbright Program is a flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries.
Erika is majoring in environmental studies, with minors in biology and anthropology. She will be studying the competition between two coastal dune species, the valuable endemic Scaevola plumieri and the invasive Scaevola taccada, growing on the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago.
