Get to Know Madison Greene

Why did you choose to attend UM?

UM was the school where I felt the most supported academically and professionally. I felt there were many different outlets of support that would allow me to become the best version of myself. Looking back to that decision almost five years ago, I would not change a thing. Choosing to attend UM has been the best decision for not only my academic and professional development but for my self-growth as well.

What would you tell a high school student about your major?

I would want a high school student to know that there is an enormous variety of biology classes. You can find your niche! It is important to take a number of different biology courses because you may find your future calling.

What are your 3 favorite things about your major/department at UM?

  1. The Classes
  2. The Professors
  3. The Administration

Can you tell me about a professor or a class you’ve taken that has had the most impact on you?

Professor David Higginbotham of the Spanish department has had the most impact on me. His ability to mold his teaching style to the needs of his students has allowed for academic and personal growth beyond anything I was expecting. He was always available to meet regarding coursework questions and help me with any professional development items I needed.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?

I plan on attending medical school and studying to become a neurosurgeon.

What is your go-to meal in Oxford?

I love going to OPA for their kabobs.

What is one thing you wish you knew as an incoming freshman?
