“In the Biochemistry program, I love the hands-on experience given whether it be in the lab or in research. Within this program, we have the ability to use chemicals, molecules, and compounds to understand how they react or synthesize to make new things. Science is not something that can solely just be taught in the classroom, it happens outside of the classroom with everyday life so I am very grateful for the hands-on experience in which the Chemistry Department provides to help strengthen our capabilities for the future.”
