“ The diversity of the liberal-arts curriculum prepared me for my current career and place in this world far better than a non-liberal-arts education. In addition to learning the science I needed to know, I was able to foster and explore my many other interests.” —Mary Robinson ’01


Came to Dickinson knowing she wanted to become a veterinarian. Double-majored in biology and biochemistry & molecular biology, but valued the opportunity to take courses in sociology and religion to make her “a more well-rounded person.” Built on her lifelong love of horses as a member of Dickinson's equestrian club. Entered the Veterinary Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Today works as the director of the Penn Vet Equine Pharmacology Laboratory and proudly supports the Dickinson Fund.
