About Our Guest
Emily Armlin is a recent graduate of Union College, where she studied biochemistry with minors in dance and psychology. After high school, she decided to enroll in a large flagship university but quickly realized that it was not the right environment for her at that time. Emily made the decision to move home and take classes at her local community college while looking for a better fit, and soon came across Union. Here she was able to find an incredible support network and community with endless opportunities, which allowed her to grow and continue to pursue all of her passions. During her time at Union, Emily served as a tour guide, transfer admissions ambassador, and orientation advisor for transfer students and helped develop new programming and resources for transfer students on campus. She really enjoyed helping new transfer students find their home at Union and sharing her experiences in hopes to provide the representation of different college pathways she wished she had seen while she was going through the transfer process. This coming fall Emily will be starting her PhD in biochemistry at the University of New Hampshire, as she continues to work towards her goal of a career in biomedical research.
