Chemistry and Biochemistry News



Freshman Chemistry major, Marie-Claire Ofoegbu, was elected as the Freshman Class Representative for the Student Government Association (SGA).  Marie-Claire was active in student government in high school and wants to be active at SU as well:  “It’s always been about helping people, and letting those voices be heard.”.  Congratulations Marie-Claire!


Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 AM. to 6:02 PM, Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry.  The Chemistry Department is happy to celebrate this day and spread the word that Chemistry is indeed out of this world!

In celebration of National Chemistry Week, our American Chemical Society Student Club has many upcoming events. We hope you can join us as we celebrate this year’s theme:  Chemistry is Out of this World!

Lindsay Most (BS Chem 18) participated in our BS (Chemistry)/Master's (Forensic Science) program and is finishing her graduate program this academic year.  Lindsay reports that her undergraduate degree in Chemistry prepared her well for graduate school.  She shared a few highlights of her undergraduate years: 

  • The professors in chemistry and biochemistry are exceptional.  They care about students and are dedicated to their students' success.
  • The lab work in the chemistry curriculum is completely applicable to crime scene lab procedures. 
  • Her undergraduate Capstone at Friends Medical Lab allowed her to get real world experience in toxicology.  Lindsay works at Friends part time while she's a graduate student and will be completing her graduate thesis project there. 

All in all, Lindsay was very satisfied with her undergraduate experience in the Chemistry Department at SU!

Morgan McCluskey Wirtz (Biochem '18) started this fall at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Pharmacy.  She's very excited to be in pharmacy school and is very glad that she chose VCU.  "I am currently taking ten classes varying from communications to organic chemistry to health care systems. I’m beginning to memorize a portion of the top 300 prescription drugs, which might be one of my favorite things so far." Morgan encourages others at SU interested in pharmacy to get a lot of experience in a pharmacy before applying to pharmacy school- it's really helping her a lot!  Morgan just participated in the White Coat Ceremony, receiving her white coat and taking the Oath of Pharmacy Students.  The Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty at Stevenson are so proud of Morgan!
