“Being a student in the Preprofessional Program has allowed me to explore so many health-related professions that interest my greatly. Being a person who doesn’t know exactly what she wants to do in the health science world yet, this program was truly a great fit for me. Through the numerous speakers who came in to share with us on their profession, I was encouraged and motivated to research many new professions that I hadn’t previously considered. Ithaca College’s Preprofessional Program has been a great path for me so far, and I’m excited to see where it’ll take me as I come closer to discovering the career that I want to pursue.”

"At age 18 it's difficult to choose a path of study and profession to pursue. Ithaca College was the one school that gave me the option and resources to find the right profession for me. My first semester at Ithaca College we had an opportunity to take a class that explained different health professions and had actual health professionals come in. It's a great feeling knowing you're right where you're supposed to be, and for me that's getting a great education and fulfilling my dream in becoming an Occupational Therapist through Ithaca College."

"The Preprofessional Program gave me the freedom to explore what really interested me, while keeping me on track for my final goal of going to medical school. After just one semester, I decided on Health Science with a Pre-Medical Emphasis, which matched up with requirements for medical school, but also included a variety of classes where I learned about health directly."
