Gorder selected as March 2017 Student Spotlight:

Gorder provides excellence in patient care...

Every month the Office of Student Services with the College of Optometry seeks nomination from the faculty, staff, and students of the college in an effort to recognize one student who exemplifies our student body.  This month's recipient is a true reflection on what we look for in a student at UMSL College of Optometry.

The Student Spotlight for March 2017 is:

Molly Gorder  (Class of 2017)

Molly was chosen as March 2017 Student Spotlight winner because of her care for patients. Here is what her nominator said:

"I have had many patients this rotation remark on the job that Molly Gorder has done working with them. She has a quiet, friendly spirit and shows the patients she really cares.

 She is always ready to take on patients. I see her looking up items in the consult room to verify her thoughts. She is very thoughtful about her patient care. She always has a smile on her face.

Molly is ready to fill in if another student is absent, she cares about her classmates and has good positive interactions with them.

 I have the highest confidence that Molly is demonstrating responsibility and ethics with her patients. She shows concern that she do things right. She has good record-keeping and is diligent about her patient care.

I have had Molly as a student since her second year. Because she is quiet, I think she has sometimes been overlooked, but she keeps moving along, performing excellently with a smile, kindness, friendliness and hard work."


Congratulations to Molly Gorder on this Month's Student Spotlight!  We are lucky to have you as a part of the UMSL Optometry family!!!

Class of 2021 Mixer

The College of Optometry at UMSL has many distinct features, including small class size, a wide array of externships, successful board pass rates, and high retention, but one of the most defining characteristics is the family feel atmosphere.  Each year the college begins the cycle of recruiting and admitting a new group of individuals from all over the country, and even the world.  This year the College of Optometry is welcoming 49 new students to the Class of 2021.  These students come together as strangers and will leave as close friends and even extended members of one another’s families by the time they graduate.
