Stevenson has a very active athletic program, with 27 NCAA division III sports. Just in the School of the Sciences, more than 15% of students play a sport, and more than a third of the 2017 incoming class was an NCAA recruit! Students athletes are required to maintain a minimum GPA in order to participate in sports and receive mandatory extra help through the Office of Student Success if their GPA starts to slip.  Understandably, chemistry and biochemistry majors often have one or more laboratory sessions a week which are extremely important to attend. The department works with athletes' competition schedule so that students can attend alternate sections of their laboratory or arrange an alternate time to complete laboratory work. In chemistry, we have had students in every athletic program who have succeeded in their course work as well as on the field. Pictured is Morgan McLuskey-Wirtz, a biochemistry senior who is headed to Virginia Commonwealth University school of Pharmacy this fall. Morgan has played golf her entire SU career while maintaining high academic standards.  Follow Mustang Athletics gomustangsports.com or on their Facebook pagephoto credit: gomustangsports.

The chemistry department kicked off the school year with games and cookies last week to bring students and faculty together. There was fun and laughter as majors from all years came for a little down time. It's a great opportunity to meet and get to know your faculty on a more personal level. Cookies with Chemists meets every other Wednesday at 2 PM in Solve Center D. The next event is on September 13th. Hope to see you there! 

Incoming class of 2021 freshmen are converging on campus this June for Mustang Days to complete orientation to Stevenson University. Students will learn how to register for classes and complete their Fall 2017 semester class schedule, as well as meet their Student Success Coach who will work with them their entire first year at Stevenson. Freshmen also take placement tests, meet faculty in their major, learn about campus resources, obtain their Stevenson student ID and meet fellow incoming students.

Biochemistry major Angelica Lackey is spending her summer internship with the Johns Hopkins Department of Pediatric Neurology, in the Ketogenic Diet Center. She was able to visit the helicopter pad at the hospital on her second day and was competent in taking patient histories by her third day. Angelica dreams of becoming a physician, and this internship is helping her to strongly confirm this and is bringing her "...one step closer to becoming a doctor!"
