Being 45 minutes away from Killington Ski Resort and having a variety of open terrain to engage in outdoor activities were just a few of the many reasons alumni Dan Regino cherished the four years he spent at Castleton University.
“I am a huge fan of anything and everything outdoors so choosing a school in Vermont was a perfect fit for me,” said Regino.
Regino took full advantage of the outdoors, spending time snowboarding, hiking, biking, and swimming in Lake Bomoseen, and found the academic opportunities Castleton offered were just as rewarding.
Having the ability to work closely with his professors and easy access to various equipment, were exceptionally notable experiences for the 2013 Biology and Health Science alum.
“An open door policy is an understatement for most of the professors on campus,” he said. “I practically lived in some of my professor's offices and they were always there for anything I needed, school-related or not.”
After graduating, Regino felt well prepared to further his career in the medical field. Continuing his education, he is now in pursuit of a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree at New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.
“I can honestly say I left Castleton the best possible student I could be, and it shows in the success I have had in my first two years of medical school,” said Regino. “I matured into who I am today and met some of the most important people in my life while in school.”
