    Melissa Seif is a senior Pre-Med Biology major an

    Economics minor here at UMass Dartmouth. She

    president of the Pre-Health/ Pre-Medical Society

    as well as president of Model United Nations Club

    Melissa believes that being active on campus is a

    fulfilling an enriching experience that adds to he

    background and allows her to build relationships

    the community she is currently part of. If youhave something to offer then why not use

    that knowledge and channel it to your and other'

    benefit? Never hold back, opportunities

    are everywhere and being involved means not on

    seizing them but also excelling in them. Melissa

    feels that UMD creates an environment of

    motivation, always encouraging students to thriv

    for their goal. We are not handed things on a silve

    platter, we have to earn them. This is a life lesson

    to be learned at a young age. UMD does a great job

    at preparing us for the competition and the ups an

    downs we will face as professionals later on in ou

    career paths.
