How an introductory Biology course changed a life

Bradley Hintze graduated from USU in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. Born with cerebral palsy, Bradley initially thought his physical limitations would place a college education beyond his reach. But, with encouragement from USU advisors, he started classes here in 2003. A turning point, he says, was his introductory biology course. Bradley says still remembers being nervous while taking his first exam. Yet, he earned the highest score in the class, helping him gain confidence and promoting his love for biology. In 2015, Bradley earned a doctoral degree in structural biology from Duke University.
