Katrina Schmidt graduated from the University of Oregon in Winter of 2020 and has been incredibly active with CGO from the beginning of her college career. This is what she wrote about her experiences within the organization:
I am a Human Physiology major and am currently working on my medical school applications to become a psychiatrist. CGO will be the biggest thing I miss from my time at the University of Oregon. Starting out as a freshman, it gave me a community who I could rely on for support and to push me to better myself. Through the upperclassmen I was able to get involved in different clubs and activities that I may not have considered before. The opportunities that the CGO provide are invaluable. Especially as a science major, it was always refreshing to take time every week to ponder complicated issues, do some self-reflection, and learn a little more about the world and each other. Being a part of the CGO has taught me many lessons including the need to practice ethics and that sugar is the devil.
