Chemistry award winners

Although he never met Dr. Hugh Anderson, second-year science student Brandon Eastman says he is grateful for the legacy the late professor emeritus has left at Memorial.

Mr. Eastman is one of 13 recipients of a new endowed scholarship for chemistry students set up in Dr. Anderson’s name.

Attention all undergraduates! Physics 3900 (Laboratory Physics I) is unlike any other physics course you've taken, and we're proud of that. In this course, you work closely with instructors on several different special projects of your choice from areas like optics, materials science, spectroscopy, fluids, and modern physics. Not only do you learn some cool physics, but you also develop marketable practical skill in the process. What does this mean for you? By the end of the term, your instructors can help you build a list of resume-appropriate skills to showcase what you've learned. This will help you when you apply for jobs, and it will also help your instructors to write more detailed recommendation letters for you when you need them in the future.  To learn more, contact Mike Morrow, Kris Poduska, or Chris Deacon.
