Alum Rachel Buchanan (CHEM '12, MS in FSCI '13) is currently employed by the United States Department of Defense. She works for the U.S. Army Public Health Center as a Physical Science Technician. She enjoys applying her coursework from SU in her daily work. 

Alum Brandon Smith (BS Chem '13, MS FSCI '14) is our SU Chemistry Laboratory Manager.  Brandon enjoys working as the Chemistry Lab Manager because "I am involved in the behind-the-scenes work that makes it possible for the students to have a great laboratory experience. The lab is where the students get their hands-on practice and knowledge that they will later use in their careers. To be able to help provide the students with that opportunity is very fulfilling."  Everyone is glad to have Brandon as part of the SU Chemistry Team!
