Wilfredo Lopez

“I enjoyed the professors in the psychology department the most. They made psychology fun and interesting. I enjoyed the ability to build relationships with my professors and have them know who I was.” Lopez says that he “decided to become a Psychobiology major because it was geared toward health. I had the opportunity to learn about psychological research, which I found really interesting.” “Psychology is a part of medicine and I believe it helped me have a better understanding of how they both are involved in patient care.”
