KSU Honors Student and Biology Major, Mik Chari, to Attend Veterinary School

Mik Chari is a non-traditional KSU Honors student in her final year at KSU. Growing up, Mik was passionate about music which led her to open a music shop with her brother and sister called "Music by Tritone" in Roswell, Georgia. However, a fter volunteering with Zoo Atlanta in 2012, she discovered she had a passion for animals. 

In 2014, Mik made the decision to apply to Kennesaw State University and the KSU Honors Program to pursue an undergraduate degree in biology. She quickly flourished in the University Honors environment at KSU and says her favorite part of being an Honors student is the "personalized attention from the Honors faculty and Honors Colloquium."

Mik is currently busy with her senior capstone where she is studying the topic of Zebrafish and how their behavior is affected by amphetamines. Her plans after graduation include attending veterinary school. Mik has been accepted to the University of Georgia, Louisiana State University, North Carolina State University, and Auburn University.
