I could not be happier with my decision to come to Loras. I feel that it is a place where the faculty and staff are genuinely invested and care about your success. On top of that, I love how all of the students come together to form a tight-knit community here on campus.

Straight Talk from a Duhawk

I try to share with students the same passion, love and fascination I have for biology and the natural environment around me. I strive to keep students excited and offer opportunities to experience biology–see something new and wonder what it is, how it works and why it’s there–challenge them, and encourage them to see things from a different perspective, one they may not have considered before, so they can think globally and act locally, especially in the context of environmental sustainability. Really, I teach to give them an opportunity to live our tagline. To be more. Be Loras.
