“My time at Waynesburg University prepared me to tackle graduate studies and a professional life in many ways. Small class sizes and outstanding chemistry professors made the transition to life as a graduate student a little easier. Furthermore, WU provided me with ample opportunities to connect with professionals in the chemistry field. I am very fortunate that the chemistry department promoted opportunities that allowed students to travel to conferences and attend professional meetings in the city of Pittsburgh, an opportunity that I discovered not many universities encourage. WU and the opportunities afforded to me played a crucial role in helping me get to where I am today and will guide me to future successes.”
