Mandi Sheroke, who graduated with her BS in Chemistry in May, has joined the School of the Sciences as a GA for the Chemistry Department. Mandi is in the BS/MS program and will receive her Master's in Forensic Science in May 2015. As a GA, Mandi will help out in many ways: helping students with job searches and resume preparation, doing officework, helping with recruiting events, and being available to pitch in wherever else her help is needed. In return, Mandi's tuition is paid for and she receives a stipend each semester.  

Mandi said, "I'm so excited to be a GA for the Chemistry Department. I loved SU as an undergraduate and I'm happy to give back to my department in whatever way I can!"

Chemistry senior Andrew McGregor attended an SU Career Event and found himself an amazing summer opportunity! Andrew was one of the few undergraduate students chosen this summer to work as a Fellow in the Baltimore City Mayor's Office. He worked at the Department of Public Works determining ways to increase the recycling rate across Baltimore City.

To do this, he studied what percentage of people recycle along each city truck route and investigated how 40 other cities across the US encourage recycling. At the end of the summer, Andrew presented his plan to Baltimore City leaders.

During the summer, Andrew learned and practiced many skills which will be pertinent to his future successes- networking, comminication, negotiation and presenting skills. What a great summer he had!  

Janice Laforteza, a biochemistry senior, completed her Capstone internship at The Living Legacy Foundation (LLF) this summer. LLF is a non-profit health service organization that facilitates the donation and recovery of human organs and tissues for transplantation and research.  

Janice was a Quality Systems Intern. In this role, she ensured organizational compliance with various state, federal and industry regulatory agencies, filed documents for individual donor cases, shadowed staff members to learn more about the culture of LLF, and watched how skin processing is done.

In her own words, "Although this position is in an environment surrounded by the death of people, it is mostly filled with everyday real-life stories of heroes that are willing to give the gift of life! It is honestly an experience I am most grateful for and has opened my eyes to new and amazing views."

Biochemistry senior, Joshua Johnson, spent this summer interning at Giant Pharmacy as part of his Capstone course. "I have been doing the job of a pharmacy technician, such as taking prescription drop offs, filling prescriptions, making phone calls to patients etc. Also, I learned how to operate the robot Giant uses to count pills." Joshua has enjoyed this amazing internship opportunity and is excited about a career in pharmacy.
