Jace Robert Anderson

Bachelor of Science, Microbiology


Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)

I grew up in Salt Lake City, the only boy in a family of 6. BYU was always a large part of my life as I spent time both watching and attending all sorts of sporting events and camps. As such, I always knew that I wanted to go to BYU and worked hard in high school in order to make this dream come true. I majored in Microbiology and will be attending the University of Utah’s PharmD program in the fall. Some of my favorite courses have been Infection and Immunity with Dr. Poole and Virology with Dr. Berges. I am going to miss attending BYU, but I am grateful for all the lessons I have learned and the memories I have made here.

Who were your greatest supporters while earning this degree?

My parents, Terry and Lottie Anderson

What advice do you have for incoming freshmen at BYU?

Make sure to find balance in your life and reach out to those who may need a friend.

How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?

BYU has taught me how to evaluate and prioritize the different things I have going on in my life. I have learned how to work long hours and enjoy the moment rather than just the results. I know that the experiences I have had here will help me as I further my studies and pursue a career in which lifelong education is a vital part.
