Tracy Robles (BS CHEM 2012, MS, Forensic Science 2013) stopped by with her sister, Sarah (left), who is now a freshman at SU.  Tracy and Sarah are both excited that Sarah is attending SU.  

Tracy is currently a chemist at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.  In her position, Tracy uses a lot of lab skills and instrumentation that she learned at SU.  She also credits Dr. Tracey Mason's Instrumental Analysis class with giving her the skills she needs to learn new instruments.  One recent project which she found fascinating was looking for counterfeit bills in US currency.  Tracy is engaged to Walter Vargas who also graduated from SU in 2012.

Students and faculty who participated in the Summer Science Scholars Research Program met to hear our students present their overall projects and results.   Their overall summaries and presentations showed how much they learned over the summer, their growth as scientists and how much they loved the summer program!

Biochemistry Senior, Samantha Allen, spent her summer preparing for pharmacy school.  In addition to studying for her PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test), Sam completed an internship at Giant Pharmacy. She had a great experience there and learned so much.

While at the internship, her supervisor allowed her to complete the hands-on experience and learning modules needed to sit for the Pharmacy Technician exam.With her coursework complete and a strong internship experience completed, Sam is well positioned for applying to pharmacy school!

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!
