What drew you to choose chemistry as your major?
I was drawn to the chemistry major at Grove City College because I wanted to study science in an environment where I could get to know both my professors and my peers.

Remember to make time for extracurricular activities, they’re a great way to meet new friends and they help to balance your academic workload.

What are some of the things you do during your free time either on or off campus?
I have loved learning to swing and ballroom dance at Grove City College. I have met many friends through the partner dancing community here, and I am grateful to have an activity that keeps me sane when the academic workload becomes stressful.
