    A Perfect Fit

    Posted October 10, 2016

    Choosing a career is a challenging decision, but Guilford College offers a variety of programs to ensure students succeed on whatever path they choose.

    One such student is Hannah Varnell, who came to Guilford in search of post-baccalaureate training to prepare her for veterinary school.

    After graduating from Stanford University, Hannah worked for the One Acre Fund, a nonprofit organization that supports East African farmers with financing and agricultural training in an effort to reduce hunger and poverty. During that time, she decided to become a veterinarian.

    Her next step was to fill in the gaps in her undergraduate training. That’s how she found Guilford’s post-baccalaureate pre-medical and pre-health studies program. It’s designed for students who have a bachelor’s degree and want to prepare for graduate study in such professions as medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, pharmacy, physical or occupational therapy and veterinary medicine.

    “I looked all across the country,” Hannah says. “Guilford was affordable and close to my family. When I arrived, Anne Glenn, my adviser and later professor, created a schedule for me and did research for me personally to prepare me.”
