Biology, Pre-Med track and Psychology


Hi! My name is Jazlyne (she/her/hers). I’m a first year at Oregon State University double majoring in biology on the pre-med track and psychology. Additionally, I’m minoring in chemistry. My dream is to eventually attend medical school and become a pediatric neurologist.

I was born and raised in Hawaii, so I thoroughly enjoy snorkeling for seashells whenever I get the chance! However, since there are no beaches in Corvallis, I spend my free time going on walks, exploring with my friends, and playing the piano.

I chose to attend Oregon State for a multitude of reasons. The campus is beautiful, and the environment is incredibly welcoming. Above all, there are a plethora of opportunities for all students at OSU. Regarding the Honors College specifically, the ability to work on a thesis project along with immediate access to a supportive community drew my attention and caused me to apply.

Being a first year, I’m still figuring out college myself. It may seem overwhelming, but with the support of the Oregon State community, I’ve been able to slowly find my way. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We can figure things out together! #GoBeavs
