maddie MAJOR:
Marine Vertebrate Biology

HOMETOWN: Silver Spring, Maryland

“I want to specialize in birds and marine life. I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember. But now that I’ve taken a lot of marine vertebrate bio classes, I’m rethinking the vet idea. I might want to do something more related to conservation or ecology.”

FAVORITE INTERNSHIPS: Whooping crane rehabilitation program at the Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland, and aviculture intern at the National Aquarium in Baltimore

FAVORITE PROFESSOR: Lesley Thorne, School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences

“She taught the Marine Mammals and Sea Turtles class. She got people talking in groups,
which is really helpful in learning the material. Sometimes she brought in guest speakers,
like the one who talked about penguins. We also got to watch a seal necropsy.”


“There’s a SINC site, and you can go downstairs and study, and there’s a Dunkin’ Donuts.
It’s a nice place to hang out with friends.”
