Always Pushing What's Possible

Michael Amankwah

Allied Health

plans to attend medical school to study anesthesiology. He is working toward his goal as a member of the Collegiate Health Service Corps, which aims to expose undergraduate students to health care careers through service learning experiences. Amankwah is also part of the Allied Health Mentorship Program at UConn Waterbury, where he supports fellow students who are studying allied health. When not in the classroom Amankwah works at a local hospital as a patient safety monitor.

“After high school I wanted to pick a university that I knew would help me reach my goals. The smaller class sizes at UConn Waterbury really help you learn your course material and retain the information that will help you in your career later in life. There are also so many opportunities to get involved on campus and the faculty here are always willing to lend a hand.”


Jasmeet Mand


aspires to attend law school. Outside the classroom, Mand serves as the chief marketing officer for the UConn Waterbury Business Society, where she helps fellow Huskies build their resumes and prepare for their future careers.

“One thing I’ve really loved about my experience here so far is that I’ve met people who aren’t taking the same route in life as me, and I get to know them a bit more personally. At UConn Waterbury, you are not just another face in the crowd.”
