Class of 2025

Uchechukwu OrjiMajor


Why did you choose to attend Marymount?

I chose Marymount University because of the many opportunities I could gain here. I had a friend who told me about the required internship in your related field that every student has to take, the ability to work with your professors on research works as they are very friendly, and having that one-on-one time with your professor to aid in learning better.

What is your desired career path?

I am aspiring to become a medical doctor and am currently on the pre-med track.

What does Black History Month mean to you?

Black History Month means a lot to me as the celebration of this month means that we are appreciated and that we matter in the country. It is also the month when we spotlight the Black voices who have made a difference in America, our culture and our history.

How are you celebrating Black History Month this year?

I am celebrating it with the students of Marymount University as we have planned events, food and games to bond together and have a great time.
