- What was your most memorable Thayer experience?
I’ve always liked science, and in my junior year I took an ISR (Independent Student Research) course. For the course I got a position at a Visual Neuroscience Lab at Boston University. They try to understand how the brain works through vision. I have my own project examining the visual similarities and differences between patients with ADHD and autism. I’m still working there and will continue through the summer.
I decided to start the team after attending a Public Forum Debate Camp at Harvard. I had always had an interest in debate after I saw the movie The Great Debaters. I felt that the Thayer community could really use another outlet to exercise the analytical and persuasion skills that develop through public speaking.
