Amy Loreen '12
Name: Amy Loreen
Graduating Class: 2012
Majors: Biology, Mathematics
My Story: My name is Amy Loreen, Gustavus class of 2012, and I grew up in Renton, Washington (close to Seattle).
I chose Gustavus because of its community and general friendliness . I started freshman year planning on majoring in Biochemistry but eventually switched to a biology/ math double major: biology was for medical school, and math just for fun!
I’m interested in medicine in order to help people. While I was at Gustavus, I worked at a summer camp for kids with medical issues and other disabilities and this strongly supported my desire to go into medicine and work with the sick. Otherwise, I did service trips and missions during high school so I’d already basically had my heart set on it before I started college.
Top Five Activities/Experiences:
- Counselor at Camp Knutson
- Shadowing (multiple doctors)
- Working as an accompanist
- Tanzania Mission
- Service trip to Idaho Indian Reservation
Presently I’m studying at Creighton University School of Medicine and I foresee being here for 4 years after which I should be in a residency.
