Featured student: Odalys Burciaga

Name: Odalys Burciaga
School: Regis University
Hometown: Denver, CO
Major: Nursing
Minor: NA
Odalys chose Regis University because it is a school that she loved from the beginning. She found the campus to be beautiful and the perfect size for her.  She is able to still be in the city without feeling like it. Odalys felt that there are so many amazing opportunities she is able to receive with the help of the university, especially the faculty and the incredible nursing program that will help her achieve her goal step by step.

Odalys was also fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from Regis. She plans to study nursing. Her hobbies include snowboarding, playing soccer and volleyball, reading, and listening to music. Her favorite band is The Script, and her favorite book is Divergent (the entire trilogy). Her future plans include graduating from Regis with her bachelor of science degree in nursing, getting a year of experience as a nurse after graduation, and then continuing on to graduate school to receive her master of science in nursing. With this, she hopes to pursue a career as a certified registered nurse anesthetist. She also plans on traveling a lot more in the future.
