Jenni Putz: Portrait of a 2017 SVSU graduate

Jenni Putz enjoys a challenge. Her research record is extraordinary for an undergraduate, and one of those research interests resulted from challenging herself to step outside of her comfort zone. Far outside.

Her first experience on a plane came in 2015 on a trip all the way to India, and the flight included hitting bad pockets of air turbulence.

"It was really interesting," the Lapeer native said, a hint of sarcastic humor in her tone. "And when we got to India, it was quite the culture shock. Quite the culture shock."
