Congratulations Corinna! 

A new seminar course in the chemistry program this year is Career Development in Chemistry. Students learn about alternative careers, directed resume, personal statement and cover letter writing, the importance of networking and social media presence and science-specific interview skills. In class last week, students took turns being the interviewer and interviewee, while a third student took notes.  Dr. Ward recorded the interview so that students can see where to make improvements.

Junior chemistry major Krystine Hill and sophomore biochemistry major Sehlah Butt gave a Stevenson TEDx  talk on February 25. They each focused on challenges they have faced in their life due to gender, ethnicity or choice of major. Both talks can be viewed here on Facebook. Inspiring messages!

Prospective (and some accepted!) biochemistry and chemistry majors visited campus on Saturday March 4th. Students and their families were hosted by Dr. Tracey Mason and biochemistry junior Delaney Patterson during the academic information session and were led on a tour of the Manning Academic Center afterwards by senior chemistry major Janaya Slaughter (pictured). It was great to see so many new faces at Stevenson this weekend, and we hope to see you all back this summer for Mustang Days! 

Biochemistry senior, Kennedy Akwo, is excited about his future career in pharmacy.  During his capstone, he researched the disparity in safety, efficacy and perception between brand name and generic drugs.  He presented his findings at the Fine School of the Sciences Poster Session.  Based on the various pharmacy schools that he was accepted to, Kennedy has chosen to attend Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy starting in Fall 2017.
