Chemistry and Biochemistry News


Faculty and Staff in the Chemistry Department were excited to share our graduating seniors’ special day with their friends and family.  Here are some of our favorite pictures.

The Chemistry Department wished warm congratulations to our 21 chemistry and biochemistry graduates at the May Commencement.  Students and faculty gathered right before the ceremony for a departmental graduation picture.  Our students have bright futures ahead of them:  some have jobs in industry and some are continuing their education in graduate school in pharmacy, physical therapy, medicine, forensic science and chemistry.  In addition, one student will be playing professional lacrosse with the Chesapeake Bayhawks before continuing with a career in chemical engineering.

Faculty wished the students well in the words of Henry David Thoreau:

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”  

Chemistry Senior Andrew McGregor was chosen to speak at Baccalaureate. He reminisced about the students’ years at SU starting with the rainy freshmen move-in day.  He shared his love of SU people: fellow students, faculty, and staff.  He spoke a lot about the graduation theme, “This is just the beginning,” and used it to wish his fellow graduate success in all that they do in the future.

The School of the Sciences celebrated our seniors at the annual May Celebration.  All seniors and their families were invited to join faculty and staff for the event.  Food, awards, a senior slide show and presents made the event spectacular!  

Each semester, our senior science and math students enroll in their Capstone course. This course allows the seniors to engage in an internship or research experience related to their career goals. For examples, students interested in attending pharmacy school work in a pharmacy or conduct pharmaceutical research and students interested in pursuing a career in the chemical industry are placed in a chemical company. These experiences give our students real world opportunities that are invaluable in their future career plans.  

At the culmination of the Capstone course, each student prepares a poster using the format of a professional scientific meeting. At the end of each semester, the School of the Sciences hosts a Poster Session. The senior students discuss their Capstone experiences with the Stevenson Community and invited guests. Everyone was impressed with our students' knowledge and poise in discussing their internships and research projects!
