Megan Winne

Megan Winne, a freshman biochemistry and mathematics double major, is from Albany, New York. She found Lee after searching for a Christian environment in which to pursue her undergraduate studies, and she is currently part of the Kairos Honors Scholars and women’s Rugby Club. “Interactions with professors inside and outside of the classroom is my favorite part about Lee,” said Megan. “The willingness of my professors to indulge in my academic curiosity outside classes has led to even more enjoyment of my time at Lee.” After graduation, Megan plans to pursue a graduate degree in computational biology.
