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!  

Last month, Dr. Sara Narayan gave a presentation at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her talk, "Interactive Digital Presenation of Chemistry Courses Using PREZI and Voice Thread as an Alternative to PowerPoint" highlighted some of the teaching methods that she uses when she teaches chemistry to our nursing students.

 

 

Chemistry senior, Stephen Dennis, is participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Virginia Commenwealth University (VCU) this summer. Stephen is working in the “Practices and Perspectives” program which is designed to provide an experience that combines practical training in specific research techniques (practices) with activities designed to put the research into the context of larger goals of modern science and technology (perspectives). Stephen was excited to be chosen for this program and is having a great summer!

Chemistry major, Carli Castiglia, loved her first year at Stevenson. She enjoyed being able to meet many new people with very different backgrounds. She really enjoyed her freshman chemistry course.  “The best part was Mrs. Payne's friendliness and dedication to us as her students as well as the small size of the class that created a really close-knit group.”  For her end of year demonstration, Carli to color a picture using the properties of acids and based instead of a crayon or marker.
