Emily Chu

Emily is junior in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Allied Health Science. She plans to attend medical school following graduation, with interests in pediatrics and neonatal medicine. Additionally, she is a member of the Honors Program.

At UConn, Emily is involved in the pre-medical society and is an undergraduate researcher at The Korey Stringer Institute. During her freshman and sophomore years, she was a member of the Women in Math, Science, and Engineering (WiMSE) learning community. She enjoys staying active by going for runs around campus and going to the gym. She has participated in many intramural sports, and finds them to be a good way to continue athletics at a less competitive level. She is looking forward to another year as a College Ambassador, and hopes she can help more students fall in love with UConn too!
