Chemistry and Biochemistry News

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!

Congratulations to Chemistry senior, Chris Griffin, on completing SU’s Honors Program.  Chris was corded at the University’s Honors Reception with his proud parents and department chair in attendance.

Congratulations to Chemistry senior and BS/MS student in Forensic Sciences, Andrew McGregor, on being chosen as an intern in the Summer Intern Program for Information Assurance (SIP/IA) with the National Security Agency (NSA)!  Andrew will spend his summer involved in information assurance projects, including protecting and defending the nation's information systems networks and outmaneuvering cyber adversaries.  In order to be chosen for this very selective and competitive internship, Andrew submitted an extensive application and went through a long security clearance process.  Andrew is really excited about this amazing opportunity!  

At the SGA Awards Banquet, the Zombies Event was chosen as the Best Social Event.  This event was co-sponsored by several clubs on campus.  Two biochemistry majors, Michele Collingsworth (left) and Nicole Heil (right) were very active in organizing, planning and making the event a success, so were able to be part of those who accepted the award.  Congratulations!
