Current College of Arts and Sciences Students

Nayantara Arora, Neuroscience ‘24

Nayantara Arora, Neuroscience ‘24

Nayantara Arora is class of ‘24 and is a Clark Honors College student studying neuroscience at the UO with minors in chemistry and global health. She also works in the Global Health Biomarkers Lab. In 2023, she was named the UO's first Rhodes scholar since 2007.

“I've had so many opportunities to try things out and figure out what I wanted to explore in the future. I got to take a little flavor from every subject throughout my first year, and I had a lot of access to support and mentors who helped me introspect and decide what fields held what kind of potential and what kind of future I could possibly have.”
