What inspired you to pursue a chemistry major or minor?

Chemistry is the one class I really enjoyed in high school and I could not see myself studying anything else. 

What are some benefits of studying chemistry at a liberal arts college?

One will receive a well-rounded education not only about chemistry.  You learn about other subjects that are valuable for the work force too. 

What advice do you have for students considering a major or a minor in chemistry?

Do not let it intimidate you, if it is something you are interested in, do it! There are so many resources to help you along the way. 

How do you anticipate using your degree after graduation?

Further my studies in pharmacy. 

What has been the highlight of your time at CSB/SJU?

Being part of such a great community. 

Are you involved in any other activities or clubs at CSB and SJU?
