Anthony O. LeAnthony O. Le, Springdale, AR

Senior Biology Major
School of Arts & Sciences

Valuable Internship Opportunities

Intern for Carlson Chiropractic Center, Joplin (Spring 2013)

SUCCESS FOR FUTURE STUDIES: "My degree in Biology has allowed me to set myself up for success in Chiropractic school. It has given me the required education needed to further my studies."

EXPERIENCE TO UNDERSTAND MY FIELD OF STUDY: "Missouri Southern has allowed me to get hands-on experience and has provided the resources I need to better understand my field of study." 

PERFECT SIZE, GREAT LOCATION: "I chose Southern because of its size and location. It was far enough to be away from home but close enough to go back. You don't have to go to a big name school to be successful; the name of a school doesn't determine quality of education - it's the faculty and staff at that school and I believe Missouri Southern's is second to none. If anything, Southern has allowed me more one-on-one time with my professors and other staff."

"Southern has given me everything I need to further my education and be successful."
