"One thing I appreciate above all others about UNE and being a part of the Chemistry and Physics Department is the size and openness of the faculty. Thanks to the small class sizes, it is easy to get to know your professors on a more personal level. Not being a face in the crowd helps the faculty remember who you are and allows for much more one-on-one time when a question comes up regarding class work. It is no trouble to meet with professors to get help when needed.
"My most pivotal experience here at UNE was during one of the weekly seminars I attended with the research lab I work in... Following this seminar, I found myself putting together a realistic and motivational plan for my future, something I found difficult to do throughout my first years in college... I have decided to get my Ph.D. and become a college professor, and embrace the ability to educate others, and particularly attempt to interest students more heavily in the constantly expanding fields of science."
