Student Stories

Justin Jurczyk ’17

Chemistry Major, Economics Minor

“In class, you are not just another number. Instead, professors truly want to see their students succeed and are willing to do whatever it takes to facilitate this success. Here, students can ask questions regarding any uncertainty in the material, but can also talk about how their day is going. Complementary to the intimate learning environment, the department also boasts a great appreciation for intellectual rigor.”

“Allegheny’s Chemistry Department is unique because of the incredible faculty, resources, and curriculum that it offers. In addition, we have opportunities for students to explore the areas of chemistry they particularly enjoy. From organic to analytical, inorganic to general chemistry, we have a breadth of diversity in the department that sets us apart. We also host multiple talks across campus, inviting some of the biggest names of chemistry to campus.”
