Mr. Dunne took his senior anatomy classes to the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois, to visit the cadaver lab. A cadaver lab centers around the dissection of deceased human bodies. The trip was a great learning experience for all the students that went. The lab featured three bodies, two female and one male. The students at St. Francis previously began the dissection, so most of the body was already dissected and labeled. Along with the cadaver lab, the classes took a tour of the St. Francis campus, then went to get burritos.
One of the students who enjoyed the trip was Jack Zampillo. Jack said, “I loved the cadaver lab because it was actually pretty cool to see and touch dissected humans. The burritos were also pretty good, too.”
Another student on the trip was senior Mike Leoni. When asked about the trip, Mike said, “The bodies looked pretty gross at first, but eventually it got better. Touching the organs inside was pretty cool to do.”
Overall the trip was a success, and it proved to be a great learning experience for all the students who attended. Some may have even considered applying to St. Francis after going on the campus tour, or maybe even considered majoring in something in the medical field.
