Student spotlights

Ashton Lewandowski Biomedical Physics, 2019
It has helped me to branch away and learn about a wider area of science than I was previously used to. This has helped me to tie my lessons together from multiple different courses because I have a strong background in Physics and Biology.
Jason Potter Pre-Nursing and 2019
Honors has given me a greater sense of community and has made me love my city of Detroit and try to showcase what Detroit has to offer to everyone I meet.

We will create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities.
