Greetings! My name is Jorie Casey and I am currently a fourth-year student majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. After graduating, I plan on travelling and volunteering during my gap year before entering medical school to pursue studies in hematology and oncology.
With both of my parents serving in the military, I lived in several states but consider Tigard, OR as home. I knew I wanted to remain close to home for college and decided to enroll in the Honors College at Oregon State University as I neared the end of my high school academics. After researching and visiting the campus, I found the Honors College to be an inclusive and supportive community that I wanted to join!
To me, the Honors College is a place that continues to nurture a community of diverse, passionate peers able to communicate, collaborate and overcome challenges. With vast resources including supportive staff, engaging courses and extracurricular activities, the Honors College embodies community and diversity.
In addition to being an Honors College Ambassador, I am an Honors College Peer Mentor, a lab research assistant and a member of Sigma Delta Omega. I spend most of my time conducting research or exploring Oregon.
I am thankful to be part of the Honors College community where I have found support, guidance, opportunities and lifelong friends. Please email me with any questions you may have!
