Christine Koval '07
Class of 2007
Christine transferred to Northeastern University after spending 2 years at the University of Georgia. She came to NU primarily because of her love for Boston; however, the Co-op program definitely made Northeastern stand out among the many schools in the area. While at Northeastern, Christine was a member of the NU Biology Club, the BU Neurons, Academy of the College of Arts & Science, Dean's List, National Dean's List, Sigma Alpha Lambda National Honor Society, and Golden Key International Honour Society.
Christine completed one Co-op as an undergraduate at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). The Co-op has had a great impact on her academic career at Northeastern. Because of this experience, she gained more confidence as a student and as a scientist, as well as acquiring a wealth of knowledge that will help her as she continues working towards my career goals in life.
Working as a Co-op at MUSC Co-op led directly to Christine's first full-time position after obtaining her NU degree in January, 2007. She is now a Research Specialist in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery Research (where she did her Co-op). As far as long term goals are concerned, Christine is interested in a healthcare career in which she is able to improve the lives of others.
When not working, Christine enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, shopping, scrapbooking, music, history, and the outdoors.
