A students versus faculty basketball challenge was held last Friday, the third in a semesterly series of matchups. Last spring and fall, the faculty prevailed in matches of ultimate Frisbee and beach volleyball respectively. This year the students won 62-50 and earned bragging rights until next time. Congratulations students!
Several chemistry faculty and students presented at the Paul Lack Scholar's Showcase last week. It is an opportunity for faculty and students to share progress with the Stevenson Community.

Stevenson Summer Science Scholars Program (S3RP) held a "match" day to allow students who have applied to the S3RP to met all S3RP faculty mentors. The students and faculty paired up "speed dating" style to get to know one another and to ask questions about the research planned. The students will choose the faculty members whom they would enjoy working with and the faculty members will rank the students that are most appropriate for their research projects. Selections will be made based on mutual rankings. Up to three students will work with each faculty member for 10 full-time weeks this summer. Each S3RP student receives a stipend of $4000 for the summer. Dr. William Harrell (bottom, left) and Dr. Tim Dwyer (top, right) were selected to be faculty mentors this summer in chemistry.
Accepted scholarship students visited campus this past weekend and had the opportunity to meet with current students, faculty and visiting alumni. While their parents attended information sessions on their own, students participated in one of two hands-on workshops involving fingerprinting, hosted by faculty member Dr. Tracey Mason and FBI latent print examiner and alum Marisa Bender (Chem '10/MSFS'11), or fun with fluorescence, hosted by faculty member Dr. Tim Dwyer. Both parents and prospective students had the opportunity to hear from an SOS alumni panel, including our chemistry alums (Mandi Sheroke, Chem '14/MSFS'15 and Kathryn Merrick, Biochem '15), about the major, being a student athlete, the forensic science 4+1 program and applying to medical school and physical therapy school among many covered topics. At the meet the department session, pictured above, currents students, faculty and alumni were on hand to tell stories about their experiences. (L-R: Delaney Patterson, Biochem '18; Amanda Slonaker, Chem'10/MAT'15; Alex Bull, Chem '18; Kourtney Wells, Biochem '18; Corinna Carter, Chem '17/MSFS '18, and faculty member Dr. Jeremy Burkett.)
