Why Quillen
The small class size, location and scenery, and the rural track option appealed greatly to me. Also, I knew from my interview that I would be well taught and well taken care of as a student here.  

Being a Quillen Student
I like my classmates because we're a very social, active group of students. Also, the interaction with professors is incredible both during and outside of class. And I really love being in the mountains because it truly is beautiful in East Tennessee.  

Life Outside the Classroom
I really enjoy spending time with friends and family when I have free time. Also, I like to play ultimate frisbee with the other med students and cheer on the intramural teams. I also really enjoy reading and try to find time to fit that in daily. And, I make time for church and a Bible study each week.  

Living In Northeast Tennessee
I grew up in the area and am already quite familiar with this part of the state. Johnson City isn't too small, but it isn't overwhelming either. It is scenic and close to so many great outdoor activities. Most of all, I love watching the leaves change in the fall.
