'My research made me realize how fascinating psychology is'

Feifei (Lily) Ren

Beijing, China

What was your favorite class and why?  

My favorite class was environmental psychology with Professor Gary Evans because that class was inspirational to me on a personal level. It provided me answers that I was not able to understand by myself.

What are the most valuable skills you gained from your Arts & Sciences education?

My education here at A&S taught me professional communication skills and research skills that I will definitely be able to implement in my future careers.         

What have you accomplished as a Cornell student that you are most proud of?

I am very proud of my academic accomplishments. I was able to improve myself academically every semester, and I was part of many research projects and labs, including my honors thesis project. My research experience, especially my honors thesis project, made me realize how fascinating psychological research is, and inspired me to do more.  

If you were to offer advice to an incoming first year student, what would you say?

Try to be patient with your personal life and academic life! Try to take things easy and prioritize your personal wellbeing.

Every year, our faculty nominate graduating Arts & Sciences students to be featured as part of our Extraordinary Journeys series. Read more about the Class of 2024.
