NCVPS Super Student

“Simeon is an exceptional student.  His work is meticulous and always on time. He calls me frequently with questions to make sure that he is doing what is required and is most personable and polite. He turns in some of the best work that I have received this semester.”  –Patricia Lipsey, Spanish IV instructor

“My experience as an online student required me to be extremely organized. Because I had the ability to manage my course load and time, this in no way reduced the amount of effort and hard work that was necessary to do extremely well.  If anything, it made me more disciplined.  Students that enroll in online courses should commit to setting aside time to complete the work and stick to this schedule in order to be successful.”  –Simeon H

NCVPS Experience

Taking an online course helped me to fulfill one of my academic requirements that was strongly recommended for admission to an extremely competitive university.

The Internet

Some of my favorite internet sites are futurism.com, galaxyzoo.org and Ted.com.  They allow me to explore a multitude of topics I am curious about from various sources.  I am especially interested in research on planetary bacteria, microbiology, and astrophysics.

Gadgets and Things

My favorite technology gadgets are my iPhone, laptop and telescope.

The Future Simeon

To pursue enrollment in a microbiology program that will eventually lead to the completion of a Ph.D. degree in microbiology. My plans are to continue research in the area of antibiotic resistance testing and cancer research. I am interested in how diseases destroy cells and how human genes mutate.  I am interested in discovering new ways of treating antibiotic-resistant bacteria. I hope my research will one day create ways to slow down/eliminate the devastating effects of the most exotic bacteria including cancers.
