“The faculty in the School of Science is absolutely spectacular. One of my first experiences with my department as a prospective student has always left an impact on me. A professor had brought my mom and me into the analytical chemistry lab and while we were there discussing research opportunities, he said, ‘It’s rather lonesome doing research without students.’ Our science professors want to see us get involved in research, and they thoroughly understand all of the subject matter we are learning. Whether it be office hours, or just sharing a science pun, the faculty members are always available for their students.”
