October 25: Sarah Hayden
Biomedical Engineering & Biomechanics, Marquette 2023
How are you involved on campus?
On campus I am involved in many different organizations. Currently, I am the President of Alpha Omega Epsilon (professional STEM sorority), a researcher in the Neuromotor Control Lab, President of Global Health Technologies, Business Development Representative for MassVaxx, Board Chair of Student Conduct Board, mentor in Society of Women Engineers, member of Alpha Eta Mu Beta (Biomedical Engineering Honor Society), member of Order of Omega (Greek Honor Society), Program Intern for Sorority and Fraternity Life in the Center for Leadership Service and Involvement, and volunteer at Aurora Sinai in the Emergency Department.
What is your mission or goal through your leadership here at Marquette?
Throughout my leadership roles at Marquette, my main goal is to help others. That is also my personal mission outside of my leadership roles. I believe that if I have the tools and capability to help others or improve their quality of life, I should take the responsibility to help them grow their own set of skills. I really enjoy serving the Marquette community, and I hope my dedication and time leaves an impact.
How do you hope to carry that on after Marquette?
I am currently enrolled in the Accelerate Master’s Degree program for Biomechanics where I am researching in the Neuromotor Control Lab on campus. After Marquette, I plan to enter the biomedical engineering industry to develop medical devices to improve the quality of life for all.
