Nianhui Yang '24

Nianhui is concentrating in Human Nutrition with plans to attend medical school.  On campus, she is Head of Events for Cornell CSSA (Chinese Students and Scholars Association), a peer mentor in EARS and an Arts & Sciences Student Ambassador.  In the Ithaca area, Nianhui volunteers at Cayuga Medical Center.  She is involved in research at the Cerione Lab, where she is investigating potential treatment for coronavirus infection.  For fun, Nianhui enjoys listening to music and watching dramas.  She is also a figure skater and loves singing and dancing.  Her favorite course at Cornell has been CHEM 2070, because it allowed her to develop learning skills which have benefitted her a lot in other classes.  This past summer, she stayed on campus to work on her Honors thesis.
