A place for instruction and inspiration

Carson Overlooking Expansive Wasatch Mountain Landscapes

Carson—class of 2019

Carson Bold
Major: Biology/Pre-Med with Spanish Minor
Hometown: Mammoth Lakes, CA

When Carson Bold pictures his future self, he sees a capable and successful physician—and a competent and engaged mountain athlete. Carson grew up in a small ski resort town in California’s eastern Sierra, where he developed a strong passion for seeking joy and inspiration in the mountains.

“Of all the schools I got accepted to, I loved this campus the most and I loved that I could continue my outdoor lifestyle.”

But that’s only half the answer. In addition to being a skier, a rock climber, and a mountain biker, Carson is on a path to becoming a doctor. Westminster has the highest medical school acceptance rate in the West, so Carson knew he was choosing a place with a rigorous and focused curriculum.

Carson’s favorite pre-med class so far? Epidemiology of the Zombie Apocalypse, “because we were able to study how disease spreads while applying it to a zombie outbreak.”

“At Westminster, I don’t have to choose between having a great career and having a great life.”
