Alixandria “Alix” Harris

Graduating Year: 2023

Education: Sociology major, minors in Biological Sciences and Chemistry

Career: Pursing a Master of Public Health

“The biggest benefit for me studying at ɫƵ was the flexibility and support for me to achieve my goals. I took an unconventional route by majoring in sociology but being pre-med as well. I received support from all departments and got faculty advisors and mentors in both sociology and biological sciences. This academic support also allowed me to freely realize that the route to public health is what I wanted to pursue, and I continued to receive further academic support with that decision.”
