Veterinary Student Scholarship Winners

2022 Winner of Wolfie’s Place and How I got into the Veterinary School Scholarship Fund

Nia Powell NCSU Veterinary student

Nia Powell

North State University College of Veterinary Medicine

Nia Powell is a veterinary student who has found an untapped interest in zoo and lab animal medicine. Despite not having a prior interest in this area of veterinary medicine, Nia’s lab and zoo animal medicine class opened her eyes to the fascinating world. What made the course even more enjoyable for Nia was its hands-on approach which allowed her to practice concepts learned in class on different animals. From physical exams on frogs and anesthetizing koi fish to drawing blood from ferrets, Nia got to work with species she never imagined she would get to work with. Moreover, the course gave her an opportunity to connect with faculty members whom she had not had a chance to interact with before. Overall, Nia describes the course as one of her favorites so far in their curriculum due to the invaluable experience gained and connections made.
