Baltimore Sun April 26

In last Sunday's Education section of the Baltimore Sun, Chemistry alum Andrew McGregor (BS'15/MSFS'16) was pictured at the first Mustang Mentors event. This is a new initiative  that connects students to Stevenson Alumni and community partners to provide networking opportunities and career advice. Andrew is an engineer and technical director with the Department of Defense and is a great mentor for students looking to pursue the forensic science masters degree at Stevenson. 

Senior chemistry major Corinna Carter was honored at the April \American Chemical Society Maryland section meeting. She was accompanied by Dr. Sara Narayan, chemistry faculty member and was awarded the ACS Stevenson student award for 2017 in recognition of her outstanding scholarship and service in chemistry. Congratulations Corinna! 

A new seminar course in the chemistry program this year is Career Development in Chemistry. Students learn about alternative careers, directed resume, personal statement and cover letter writing, the importance of networking and social media presence and science-specific interview skills. In class last week, students took turns being the interviewer and interviewee, while a third student took notes.  Dr. Ward recorded the interview so that students can see where to make improvements.

Junior chemistry major Krystine Hill and sophomore biochemistry major Sehlah Butt gave a Stevenson TEDx  talk on February 25. They each focused on challenges they have faced in their life due to gender, ethnicity or choice of major. Both talks can be viewed here on Facebook. Inspiring messages!

Prospective (and some accepted!) biochemistry and chemistry majors visited campus on Saturday March 4th. Students and their families were hosted by Dr. Tracey Mason and biochemistry junior Delaney Patterson during the academic information session and were led on a tour of the Manning Academic Center afterwards by senior chemistry major Janaya Slaughter (pictured). It was great to see so many new faces at Stevenson this weekend, and we hope to see you all back this summer for Mustang Days!
