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.”

 

Autumn Oberhart

Autumn Oberhart, Environmental Studies and Political Science ’25

Autumn Oberhart class of ’25 is double-majoring in environmental studies and political science and minoring in legal studies and environmental humanities.

“I'm able to take courses that educate me on current issues, and there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution, especially regarding our environment. I've been able to take classes in a wide variety of departments and have been exposed to different learning styles, information, and thought processes that will benefit me in the future.”
