The final Discover MSU event showcased health sciences and human services on March 11. Prospective students were able to visit the simulation center, and took part in hands-on learning experiences for fields like radiology and dental hygiene.

“Health sciences has a very distinct advantage that instead of a lecture, they got to go into the labs in the radiology and dental hygiene clinic,” Director of Admissions Dustin Webb said. 

With the help of academic advisor Catherine Rudy, Webb came up with what degrees overlap the most and what fields tend to exchange students when they want to switch degrees. Prospective students were able to attend two sessions in which they could learn more about the field they were interested in along with other fields of interest.

Sophomore math and computer science double major Ali Khalid is an A-Team tour guide that helped direct students to the different departments during Discover MSU. He said that some prospective students already had an idea of what field they were interested in but once they visited another field, it changed their mind.

“[One prospective student] wasn’t decided before this but after her visit, she was sure she wanted to do athletic training,” Khalid said. “That’s what interested her more after learning what it as about.”

Another prospective student said she is interested in nutrition as a major.

“I talked to two professors in athletic training and I like how the get to apply what they learned into a hands-on situation working with sports teams at the school,” Bridgeport High School junior Brooke Irion said.

Another prospective student said she visited the campus before and it became her first choice.

“I like the campus and the energy here, that’s why I came back for Discover MSU,” YES Prep High School senior Maria Pincon said.

The total number of students that attended Discover Health Sciences was 119 with 50 guests.
