Fleeing wartime in Bosnia during the early 1990s, Verica Milivojevic and her family settled in America. Verica's high school biology teacher, an Albertus alumnus, recommended the College to her.
"Albertus provided the basic science knowledge I needed for my biology major, but more importantly, I learned what you can't get from books - how to interact with people and communicate. The Dominican tradition at Albertus also models the importance of community service, how to be part of a community and how giving back helps us all."
At Albertus, Verica found a safe place where she could “be known and find help." During her time at the College, she began an internship at Yale University, which lead her to become a neuroscience Ph.D. candidate at the University of Connecticut. As a result of her laboratory work, she was offered a full-time position beginning the week after her graduation.
