“The Chemistry department at Rosemont College prepared me for my career by providing me with research opportunities which gave me basic lab skills that were the foundation for my career in chemistry. I also believe the most beneficial parts of my Rosemont education were the small class sizes and individual attention. Because of this, I was given many opportunities to give presentations in class, receiving feedback on my public speaking skills and ways to calm my nerves. My professors gave me an invaluable skill set: to present myself, my research, and my ideas to the world confidently and clearly.”

"What helped me the most was the bonds fostered between classmates and faculty. The faculty at Rosemont are some of the nicest and most caring individuals that I have ever had the privilege of meeting. This goes especially for Dr. Wu, who believed in me enough to help me along the path to attaining my degree, along with Dennis Perkinson, who helped build me into a person that I am proud to be today. The advantage of a liberal arts institution is that it promotes perspective. I have taken classes in theology, philosophy, art, and other subjects that differ from the one I specialized in, but I gained something from all of them."
