Kylie Holubar (’21)
Hometown: Solon, Iowa
Major: Biological Research with a minor in Chemistry

Loras College has given me multiple opportunities to grow and develop in responsibility and communication, as well as a leader and a person who serves. I have been a member of the Honors Program for the past four years. Additionally, I have actively been involved in the Chemistry Club, The Giving Tree, Ministry at Christ the King Chapel, and a Student Ambassador. I have grown very fond of all my experiences and will take them with me beyond Loras College.

I have had many members of my family attend Loras College. My older sister was involved in the basketball program at Loras, and many times I would travel to Dubuque to attend her games. I grew very fond of the atmosphere and the friendly environment that was easily observed.

I entered Loras College with an open mind. I was excited for the new friendships I would create and the long-lasting memories I would take with me after graduation. I feel that because of my positive experience attending Loras, I have become very optimistic about my opportunities, learned to persevere, and have created a strong work ethic.

Some of my best memories at Loras College have been presenting my Thesis to the Loras community. Additionally, presenting my Honor’s Program project implementation at Legacy Symposium.

This fall, I will be attending the University of Iowa College of Dentistry to pursue my aspiration of becoming a Dentist.
