“My years at Lee have been my best experience ever. Had I not gone to Lee, I would not have been the person I am today,” shares Atin Lamsal. The son of Yadu Nath Lamsal and Chandrawati Sharma of Bharatpur, Nepal, graduated from Lee University in May of 2011.
Lamsal is currently a research assistant at Vanderbilt Medical Center.
While a student at Lee, Lamsal was President for International Student Fellowship, a member of the Student Leadership Council, Diversity Council and Alpha Phi Delta, and worked maintenance in the university’s Physical Plant. Lamsal continued as a teaching assistant for Dr. Milton Riley, a tutor for academic support, a student assistant in the Squires Library and was selected to be a research intern at Brigham Young University.
Lamsal published “Conservation Genetics of Eastern Hellbenders in Tennessee Valley Watershed” jointly with Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Michael Freake in the Journal of The Tennessee Academy of Science, September 2011.
“I am so glad I chose Lee over all the other schools I could have chosen in the States. I miss the friendliness of the school environment, professors, friends and chapel services.”
