Hey hey! My name is Lucy Scholma, and I am from Fayetteville, Arkansas. I am a junior in the Bumpers College Honors Program majoring in Food, Nutrition and Health, minoring in Chemistry and Medical Humanities, and on the Pre-Med track. I have always been passionate about food (how could you not be!) but especially the intersection between our diets and the health and developmental aspects of our bodies and minds.
I am excited to have a background in nutrition as a physician one day as it will be an extremely beneficial foundation for many aspects of medicine. The honors program here at Bumpers has been a huge asset for not only my academic journey but also through the transition to college and figuring out how to be a successful student and peer. I am thrilled to be able to serve incoming freshmen this semester and be a friendly face whenever they have questions, need advice, or just want to talk about all the delicious coffee shops in Northwest Arkansas. Outside of peer mentoring, I am a member of the Alpha Epsilon Delta Premedical Honors Society, the Student Dietetics Association, hold a position in my sorority, and volunteer at Cross Church Fayetteville with the kid's ministry. I love kids, the outdoors, traveling, thrifting, and trying new things. I am looking forward to an awesome semester!
