Tara Bowker, B.S. Biology: Medical/Molecular

“I graduated debt-free with a combination of financial aid, scholarships, and hard work. In the biology program, I worked with an RSU faculty member on ground-breaking original research on the effects of Vitamin C on certain kinds of cancer. My time at RSU prepared me for graduate school. I was accepted into OU’s College of Dentistry, a four-year program that leads to a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.”
