Students Describe Their Experiences

Korleki Akiti '15


"While it has definitely been my most challenging class at Princeton, it has also been the most rewarding. I learned to think about and approach scientific questions in a completely different manner."

Krysta Dummit '15


"The course has provided me so many opportunities to find where my passion is in science — from biology to physics to chemistry to computer science. I'm the interdisciplinary chemistry major I am thanks in large part to the opportunities Integrated Science provided me to try everything, and be qualified to try everything."

Ofer Kimchi '16


"Sharing the rush of success that comes with a breakthrough in the problem sets, or with understanding a challenging concept, with a close group of friends makes the Integrated Science program that much more than what it is on paper."

Julia Metzger '16


"Integrated Science has taught me how to think. It has helped me develop the questioning and probing mind of a scientific researcher, complete with a computational toolkit for analysis."
More...

Juan Alvarez ’09


“I learned to focus on the quantitative principles behind physical models rather than on their details, and this allowed me to bridge the gap between mathematical, chemical, and biological systems.”

Jarlath Byrne Rodgers '10


"I’ve learned invaluable lessons about how to approach problems in biology, and I definitely have a much better understanding of how the fields of physics, chemistry and biology interact." More....

Christina Chang '12


"ISC emphasizes concepts rather than memorization, so the professors can teach us the parallels between the disciplines as well as dig deeply into the 'whys' that make the material come alive." More...

Keisuke Ishihara '10


"It was an amazing experience learning directly from scientists who are at the forefront of their fields." More…

Julia Liu ’08


“I think Integrated Science has the best professors and teaching assistants of any science course on campus. ” More…

Max Staller ’08


“It was an amazing experience to be able to do cutting-edge research in a classroom setting, under the guidance of phenomenal experimentalists.”
More…

Michelle Ward '10


“The course taught me to not limit my questions to a particular field. Rather, by asking questions about the chemistry and physics behind a biological system, I can learn about the biology from a more complete perspective." More…

Ashley Wolf ’08


“ Integrated science has given me an amazing network of faculty that I know I could go to with any question.”
