Hey! My name is Nidhi Patel and I am a current junior at UCF studying Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Health Sciences. I graduated from West Port High school in Ocala. My favorite class at UCF so far would have to be physiology since it really gave an insight into the upper classes within my major. My favorite professor is Dr. Flory as his class was fascinating and his teaching style was very flexible at the university level. I decided to get involved with the GEMS program because it has never failed to guide me when I have felt lost or unsure of my next step. To incoming freshmen at UCF, enjoy the undergraduate experience because it truly does go by fast! Some of my favorite things to do apart from school are watching crime documentaries, going to the gym, and trying new food places.
