A Dr. in the making

A Dr. in the making ~Dan Metcalf became interested in attending College of the Rockies because of the strong varsity volleyball program. The opportunity to take difficult courses in a small, personal environment solidified his decision to attend COTR.~

Dan was a member of the Men’s Avalanche volleyball team and particularly enjoyed being part of a team environment and spending time on road trips.

Dan took University Studies courses from 2006 to 2008 and again in 2011.  “I thought the College of the Rockies was a great place to make the transition from high school to university.  In particular, I enjoyed the classes I had with Betty Mosher, Doug McBride, and Jim Bailey,” he says.

After completing his time at College of the Rockies, Dan went on to the University of British Columbia where he completed a Bachelor of Science with a Major in Cell Biology and Genetics in May 2013.  In September Dan entered his first year of medical school at UBC and is well on his way to becoming a doctor!
