Krystine Hill is studyng at University of Pittsburgh

Stacey Wardenfelt is studying at Ohio State University

Delaney Patterson is studying at U. Maryland College Park

We checked in recently with three of our chemistry alums, Krystine Hill (Chem’18), Stacey Wardenfelt (Bioch ’18) and Delaney Patterson (Bioch ’18), who after graduating from Stevenson last May, decided to pursue a Ph.D. Krystine is at University of Pittsburgh, Stacey is attending Ohio state and Delaney is at Maryland College Park. They have some observations to share of their first semester of graduate school: [You are] “not prepared for how much goes on in your first year of grad school. having to balance graduate level classes, teaching 10 hours a week (and grading ), getting comfortable in a new city, learning a new school, finding new friends, getting into a lab group and finding a PI that is a perfect fit for you…” “Grad school is a lot of work and is definitely an adjustment period. The learning curve is substantial, just like any transition in life….plus TAing has left with me many funny stories to be able to tell.” We look forward to hearing from you all again soon!
