  • McDaniel College alumna Ashley Brown '06 DDS
    "McDaniel taught me to think critically, and this helped me tremendously at Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry, This helped me to excel, graduating in the top 5 percent of my class."
  • McDaniel College alumnus Dr. Todd Peters '02
    “The parts of medicine that I really liked — and what I loved about my education at McDaniel — were thinking creatively and systematically, working within teams and learning to cherish getting to know people’s stories.”
  • Alum Jason Swartz '18 standing at a marina.
    “It’s not just forestry and green spaces; it’s plants and people and culture. I’m even remembering my first year seminar class with Dr. Linda Semu, which was about race. Over the past year or two, we have been focusing our efforts on equity and environmental justice."
