Edlin is a first-generation college student who grew up in Texas and speaks Spanish fluently. She learned from her past college experiences and knew what she was looking for this time around. She found it all right here at UC Blue Ash.

I have been completely blown away. The dedicated professors and the resources that are available are amazing. I don’t think I have ever been able to connect with my professors previously as I have at UC Blue Ash. I hope that a lot of people are able to find this because it’s what the educational experience should be.

Professor Yoshi Odaka in the lab with a student

Professor Yoshi Odaka, Biology

For as long has he can remember, biology professor Yoshi Odaka has been fascinated by the working of organisms – and he never grew out of it! At UC Blue Ash, he thrives on research, and loves to get his students involved. His most recent research project revolves around the so-called “brain-eating amoeba,” N. fowleri, which he has studied extensively. Odaka routinely gives his students the opportunity to present their research with him at national microbiology conferences.

“I love the opportunities to work with students of diverse backgrounds in a small enough class where I can see the face of every student. At UCBA, the mission is not just a statement – we actually practice diversity every day.”
