If getting a degree in biomedical science wasn’t enough work, Lyndsay Canwell ’16 is not about to take time off. This summer she will intern with veterinary diagnostics laboratory IDEXX before beginning her master’s degree in the nursing program at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions.
It isn’t surprising that she is pursuing a career helping people; her favorite experience at UNH was volunteering with Wildcat Friends.
“After a long week of class, there was nothing better than going to hang out with such genuine and enthusiastic people,” she says. “I really hope to be able to stay in touch with the program as long as I am in the New England area.”
If Canwell could give the Class of 2020 one bit of advice, it would be to get involved. “It sounds cliché, but these four years go by so fast,” she says. “The last thing you want to do is look back and wish you had done more. You will never be in another situation in life where you live five minutes from all of your best friends and have access to the hundreds of programs and clubs we have at UNH. Take advantage of them while you can!”
