Advice for future CSB/SJU student researchers:

“Participate in research as much as you can at CSBSJU! These opportunities won’t always present themselves so take the chance now. During research, you learn many transferable skills; time management, internal motivation, and collaborating with others. These skills will be beneficial to use anywhere in life or future employment, not just dietetics. In my experience, my research advisor has mentored me in improving my written and oral communication skills. Additionally, I always know my advisor will be a source of support in academics and life. The relationships you build with fellow research students and your faculty advisor can be invaluable.”
