Get to Know Nancy Liu

Why did you choose to attend UM?

I decided to attend the University of Mississippi after hearing about amazing academic programs that they have. When I visited the university during my senior year of high school, I was amazed by how beautiful the campus was and the warm and welcoming atmosphere here.

When and how did you choose your major(s)/minor(s)?

I chose Chemistry as my major because I have enjoyed it since high school. Not only am I interested in the subject, the curriculum for chemistry also allows flexibility in choosing other classes that are of interest to me such as psychology and biology, which are my minors.

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

There are some classes that are known to be difficult that are required for this degree. While some of those classes may have supplemental instruction, some higher level classes may not have SI. I think it is important to know that professors are always willing to help and going to office hours can be beneficial in grasping the material.

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

Dr. Scott, who I took for Chem 314 during my junior year, has made big impact on me during my time here. I took her class during the fall semester of my junior year and found every class to be enjoyable. Not only is she very funny, she is also a great person to talk to. She gives great advice and is very encouraging.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?

After graduation, I hope to attend dental school.

Apart from school, how do you spend your time in Oxford?

In my free time, I like to read while listening to music. I also like playing games and hanging out with my friends.

What is your go-to meal in Oxford?

Toyo's Brian roll and Mi&Tea's spring rolls are my favorites!
