Student Highlight

Meet Marisol!
She is from San Tan Valley, Arizona. Her favorite color is teal. She loves dogs and considers herself to be an optimist in most situations. She's a Pre-Physiology major, and just recently finished New Start this past summer. 


Q: Where's your favorite place to eat on campus? What is your favorite dish there?
A:"My favorite place to eat on campus is NRich because they have inexpensive healthy food. I like getting the Caesar salad with tea."

Q: Which class have you been enjoying the most this semester? Why do you like it?
A: "I really like my Biostatistics class because we get to do some cool coding things. It's my first encounter with coding and its actually really fun."

Q: Who inspires you? Why?
A: "My dad inspires me because he knows so much about a lot of things but he is so humble. He is so determined and headstrong, and I aspire to be like him."

Q: How did New Start help prepare you for your first few weeks here at the University of Arizona?
A: "I knew all about what most freshman did not (like D2L, how to get around campus) and I already knew some of the obstacles I'd be facing and how to deal with them. It was also nice to know that there are still people around after New Start that are willing to help me if I need it."

Q: Which social media platform could you not live without? Why?
A: "Snapchat because the videos are usually short, and I like using the discover feature."

Q: Do you prefer tea or coffee?
A: "Tea"

Q: What's an interesting fact about yourself?
A: "An interesting fact about me is that I play violin."

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why?
A: "I would travel to London because the city is so interesting to me and there is always something new to see and do there."
