March 2018 Student of the Month

Jessi Kopperdahl - Neuroscience

Jessi Kopperdahl

Greetings. My name is Jessi Kopperdahl. I am Blackfeet and Sioux from Billings, MT. Currently, I am a sophomore majoring in Neuroscience. I am a first generation and nontraditional student. I am a single mom with two awesome kiddos. I work as a mentor with TRIO and I also work at DSS. I enjoy my job as a mentor with TRIO as I get to help other students from a peer perspective experience how fundamental TRIO is if their services are frequently utilized. I cofounded the TRIO SSS student group with two other amazing TRIO students during fall 2017. We started our group to reach out to students by giving them a place outside of class where they can go and know they are always welcome. Our goal is to encourage and uplift students through social interactions so they know their struggles during college don’t have to be faced alone. My academic areas of interest are neurological disorders, how the brain functions and communicates with the body, human/animal behavior, and neural imaging. I was fortunate when I returned to UM as I was in contact with TRIO before I started my first semester. With the help from TRIO and taking C&I 160, I received a 3.9 my first semester back on campus. That would have never been possible without this fundamental program. Book loans, tutoring, and maintaining contact with the TRIO staff are just some of the crucial services I have frequently utilized as a student at UM. TRIO will always be considered a family to me and I could never thank them enough for all they have done for me. Thanks TRIO
