“Through rigorous science classes, mock MCATs, guest speakers, and individual attention by faculty and staff, Marian University has prepared me well for a career in medicine.”

Jillian Mucho placed a deposit at a large university and was attending orientation when she realized that it was not where she wanted to be. She wanted someplace smaller. Mucho’s first visit to Marian University was with Loren Bertocci, Ph.D., dean of the School of Mathematics and Sciences, where she let it be known that she had goals to become a doctor and wanted personal attention from expert faculty.

Three and a half years later, Mucho has accomplished everything to which she set her mind and heart. Not only is she graduating an entire semester early with a 3.97 GPA, but also she has been accepted for early admission to the Indiana University School of Medicine for fall 2013. “Amazing accomplishment! It takes a unique student to achieve that kind of recognition,” says Dr. Bertocci proudly. Mucho received a Saints Francis and Clare Academic Scholarship, Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities recognition, and The Sister Mary Rose Stockton Excellence in Chemistry Award for the past two years.

Hard work and dedication to academics were not the only avenues ventured into during her collegiate life. She married her high school sweetheart Kevin Mucho (’12 in education), became certified and worked as an emergency medical technician (EMT), and still found time for activities on campus such as Peer Tutoring, Ambassadors, Best Buddies, and College Mentors for Kids. Mucho is touched and grateful to all that helped her achieve her goals. “Each of these activities helped me foster relationships with faculty and students here at Marian University and I have formed many friendships that will continue well past graduation.”
