Bryce Hunt is a nutrition student at UNR specializing in dietetics. Bryce is said to be a wonderful student, participates in class, and is very passionate about nutrition and his future career. He is described as humble, talented, and a future wonderful contributor to the field. After graduating this coming May, Bryce plans on immediately taking the NDTR credentialing exam. He will work on this until he hopefully starts his dietetic internship in August. Bryce finished applying for the internship in February and will find out the results in a few weeks.
When the pandemic hit, Bryce had just started his first semester at UNR. He was able to start in person and then everyone scrambled to figure out how to do remote learning. During this time Bryce had to learn to adapt just like his teachers did. Everyone had to work together to ensure proper communication. He admits it was a bit rough at first but eventually he found a groove that worked well.
Bryce currently has two jobs in addition to finishing his degree. He works at Renown Rehab Hospital as a Nutrition Representative. He also works at a Nutrition Microbiome Research Lab on campus under the guidance of Dr. Steven Frese. Over the past year, Bryce has also volunteered at various food collectives and non-profits such as Eddy House (a Reno-based nonprofit that provides housing and support for homeless youth), Urban Roots (a small community farm that educated children and families on crops and foods), and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada
As a student Bryce makes a difference to fellow students in two ways. He likes to provide resources to other students that are interesting or useful on a particular topic. He also likes to be someone that other students can reach out to if they need to brainstorm or have ideas they want to bounce around.
To make a difference in the community once he becomes an RD, Bryce wants to have a hand in making nutrition literacy more attainable as it pertains to current research. Bryce wants to become an RD because he loves sharing knowledge.
In his spare time, Bryce likes to hike, walk, cook, ferment various foods (like cider, kombucha, and sauerkraut), and start projects.
