"I am in the Molecular and Cell Biology program and I tutor mainly biology and chemistry. I am a huge science nerd especially concerning anything that has to do with viruses. I even own a cold virus plush toy! I can even make ice-cream using liquid nitrogen but if I have no nitrogen on hand I can still bake awesome desserts. I may have a slight reading addiction… Barnes and Noble knows me on first name basis! If there is music I will dance, if you can call the monster mash a dance move. I go all out for Halloween – my dorm room was unrecognizable all through October because of the decorations. In my free time I like jumping into large piles of leaves, flying kites, and sledding. I would like to get a PhD in virology and research the evolution of viruses and their hosts’ adaptions to that evolution. However, when I retire I would like to open up a bookstore and bakery in Ireland." - Bridget Moricz
