Ben Arentson

Hometown: Harlan, Iowa
Majors: Biology and chemistry
Graduate School: Ben is pursuing his Ph.D. in biochemistry at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.

“The education I received at BVU was very well-rounded and gave me a breadth of knowledge across many different fields of science. After five years of graduate school, I am still very grateful for the strong educational foundation I received on which to build a career. I also commend the faculty at BVU for introducing and encouraging me to participate in the summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, which ultimately led to additional educational opportunities following my time at BVU.”
