Chris Toth, BS Biochemistry 2016, is a second year student in the Physician Assistant Program at the University of Toledo. In a recent conversation, he told us the following:

"During my time at Stevenson I discovered:

  • The importance of being a team player which is integral to my future profession now
  • How to critically think through problem based learning that has translated into problem based learning at the graduate level
  • The foundations of being an adaptable and life-long learner"

In January, Chris has clinical rotations and then graduates in December 2019!  Everyone in the Chemistry Department at SU couldn't be more proud of Chris and his accomplishments!


Chemistry faculty member Dr. Jeremy Burkett and Science writing instructor Dr. Kerry Spencer came together to explain the Alchemy in Frankenstein during a science-meets-literature collaborative event between Schools at Stevenson last month.  Participants also heard about the history of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, listened to recitations from creative writing students, ate cake and watched movies. 

Freshman Chemistry major, Marie-Claire Ofoegbu, was elected as the Freshman Class Representative for the Student Government Association (SGA).  Marie-Claire was active in student government in high school and wants to be active at SU as well:  “It’s always been about helping people, and letting those voices be heard.”.  Congratulations Marie-Claire!

The annual Chemistry Magic Show was performed by the American Chemistry Society Student Club. There were lots of cool experiments, including fun with liquid nitrogen, boo-bubbles and elephant's toothpaste. The student presenters did an awesome job. In case you missed it, there will be an encore performance during the Maryland STEM festival this Friday November 9th in MAC S136 from 2-3 PM.
