Brite is a junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Pathobiology and Molecular & Cellular Biology. She is interested in a multitude of healthcare fields such as surgical pathology, research design, and biostatistics, and aspires to become a pathologists’ assistant in the future.
This year, Brite is involved with the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab, where she assists with animal necropsy and disease diagnosis. She is also a mentor for AsAAC’s Asiantation Mentoring Program, where she helps first-year students transition into the college environment. You will find Brite all over campus this semester getting involved in various community outreach initiatives, practicing for the annual lipsync competition, and hopefully going on many more midnight runs.

Three Pieces of Advice for Prospective Students:
- Don’t play hooky. I learned my lesson last semester when I thought I could study class material on my own, but the truth is, studying on your own is more difficult and time consuming. By going to class, you will learn the material much faster, and be able to meet your peers and professors!
- In addition to studying, make some time everyday for relaxation. Don’t sit through a 3-hour study session without taking breaks; get up every once in a while to stretch or take walks. Your mind will be more refreshed after, and you’ll become much more productive.
- Get involved on campus! Networking and meeting new people are key to your college experience, and not to mention a great way to land opportunities on and off-campus.
