Sophomores

Cassie Farber

My name is Cassandra Farber and I am a sophomore from Buffalo Grove, IL. I grew up in the Chicagoland area, so coming to OWU became the first time I have ever lived out of state. I am a Neuroscience and Pre-Medicine double major with a Chemistry minor. I have been interested in STEM for as long as I can remember! My goal with my degree is to either go to medical school, or go into scientific research. My involvements on campus include being a member of Kappa Alpha Theta as well as doing research in the neuroscience lab. I wanted to join the honors board because I have always considered myself to be a very tenacious learner, and I wanted to seek out more ways to get immersed into the honors community here at school. Being a member of the board has given me the opportunity to expand my leadership skills as well as become more involved in the OWU honors program. I appreciate my education so much, especially the opportunities that I have gotten as an honors student at this university (including living in the honors house!). I look forward to the rest of my term and all the cool experiences that lie ahead.
