ARC's math and science department gave me a solid academic foundation that was essential to my success as a transfer student at UC Davis and as a medical student. The professors understood the rigorous curriculum that transfer students would need to be able to handle upon starting at their respective 4 year institutions. They built a curriculum that emphasized problem-solving skills that would extend beyond the courses being taught and showed genuine interest in the success of their students. ARC offered me valuable access to STEM resources including study rooms (Science building, MESA), tutoring opportunities where I was able to tutor students in both financial accounting (with professor Ardans) as well as Chemistry (with professor Wheaton), clubs to participate in (AMSA, Phi Theta Kappa), as well as access to information regarding extracurricular activities, (such as volunteer activities, internships). I can say without a doubt, that the education and mentorship I received at ARC is the reason why my dream of becoming a surgeon is now a reality within my reach.
