Nathan McKee
Nate McKee from Paw Paw, Illinois is our ROCK SOLID REGENT for the week. Nate is a junior biology major and was nominated by Jeanne Grey and Liz Bergstrom from the Center for Learning Strategies (CLS). Nate was selected to serve as a biology peer tutor in CLS. Jeanne and Liz share that he is conscientious, punctual, prepared and sincerely enjoys helping other RU students. Most importantly, Nate ALWAYS has a smile on his face!
In addition to his academic focus on cellular and molecular biology, he also makes time for extracurricular activities. He participates in Alpha Helix, the Gathering Club and serves as the President of Magic. Nate enjoys being a student at a small university.  He shares that at RU teachers get to learn your name and you almost feel like you’re asking a friend about the homework and not a professor. After graduation from RU Nate has plans to continue his education in medical school and pursue a career as a forensic pathologist. Congratulations to our ROCK SOLID Regent, Nate McKee.
