Stories of our Alumni

Georgina Brown, Molecular Biology & Biotechnology '20

Georgina earned the Maize & Blue Award, UM-Flint's highest academic honor. She also collaborated with Dr. Sucic on research projects - they studied the ability of older adults to recover from exercise. She says: “I think a lot of college students can be afraid to talk to their professors…they don’t want to feel dumb for asking a question. I really liked that my professors encouraged me whenever I asked questions; I think that really contributed to my success as a student.”

Jason Taylor, Biology '97

Jason Taylor has been named as Director for the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute, Rocky Mountain Research Station, where he will oversee research on 110 million acres of designated wilderness land in the US. . Before that, he served as the Superintendent at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.

Asadullah Siddiqui, Biology '14

When asked about advice for UM-Flint students, Siddiqui said, "Get involved. Research, volunteering, tutoring; anything to make your application stronger and give you things to talk about in interviews. I even recommend getting a non-academic job to empathize with others; this drove me to work harder for my goals. Also, try your best to make it to a game in Ann Arbor, you won’t regret it!"

Derrick Townsend, Biology '96

Considering that it has been almost 20 years since I was a student, I think what UM-Flint has become today is on the trajectory of what I would have imagined as “UM-Flint of the future” when I graduated. I am happy to see there is now a residence hall on campus – this was being talked about while I was there. I am also very impressed to see all of the graduate degrees now being offered. In my opinion, UM-Flint has taken great strides toward expanding their reach and increasing the breadth of their influence.
