Recent Grad Spotlight: Oriana Ovide

 Oriana Ovide headshot.

Recent graduate Oriana Ovide knew the Honors College was right for her from her first tour of WVU, with the great access to academic resources and tight-knit community. Oriana pursued experiences in undergraduate research from the beginning of her time at WVU, researching with WVU’s Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, presenting at a conference with her research group junior year, and spending as summer researching with the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD after being awarded a prestigious NSF summer research fellowship.

Today, Oriana still works with the same research group from her junior year, but now as a master’s student in forensic science. Oriana plans utilize her research experiences to one day become a drug analyst or tracer in a forensics lab or to hold a government position where she can apply her knowledge outside of the lab.
