Why I like Chemistry

I like chemistry, because it can explain virtually anything we observe in our world. Whether it be why we use salt on snowy roads, why the sky is blue, or what a greenhouse gas is, chemistry can be used to explain it.

Why I chose the Chemistry and Biochemistry Program at UW-Milwaukee

I chose the Chemistry and Biochemistry Program at UW-Milwaukee, because of the friendly energy and positive attitude of the department. All the faculty, staff, and students are pleasant to be around and supportive, which is something really special for a graduate program to have.

Favorite things to do in Milwaukee

Going to see improv shows at Comedy Sportz
Seeing musicals at the Marcus Center of Performing Arts
