When Justin Penticuff arrived at Transylvania, he was uncertain about how he could continue to cultivate his love of writing and literature while concentrating on the natural sciences as a biology major and pre-med student. Thanks to Transy’s small college, liberal arts environment, Justin has discovered that his English side and his science side can happily co-exist.
Encouraged to foster his love of the sciences while also pursuing his writing, he has found that the professors and the curriculum lead to an integrated approach to all his studies, not just natural science and English. He is learning about medicine and biology and how living systems relate to psychology, the fine arts, and to life outside the sciences. All of that has taught him to think across boundaries.
