South Carolina Honors College

Ashutosh Arora

Ask me about… research, pre-med opportunities and getting involved on campus!

Hello! I’m from Charlotte, North Carolina (originally India) studying biological sciences, with a minor in medical humanities and culture. I am an undergraduate research assistant in the department of biological sciences, as well as the deputy elections commissioner in Student Government. I also serve in multiple leadership positions in various pre-medical and non-medical university organizations. In the future, I want to become a surgeon, while continuing to pursue interests in research and public policy.

My advice for prospective students: Never be afraid to reach out to others for new opportunities and experiences!

My advice for current students: Continue to foster and grow relationships with mentors.

My favorite thing about the Honors College: The cool courses that allow me to network with local professionals.

My reason for choosing the SCHC: A desire for a balanced liberal arts education alongside my traditional pre-medical coursework.

My hobbies: are basketball, basketball, basketball. I initially started watching the sport in middle school so that I could better connect with my peers — many of whom loved sports. However, what started as an effort to get to know others better has turned into, as my friends would say, about 90% of my personality. I love watching, playing and even reading about the sport.

Something that makes me laugh: My dog! He knows exactly how to make me smile when I’m having a bad day.
