“My experience in the Tabor chemistry department prepared me well for graduate school. The faculty helped me to grow as a chemist through relevant lab experiments, challenging exams, original research, and even opportunities to attend and present my research at conferences in Florida and California. My professors were not only excellent teachers, but also friends and mentors both in and out of class who I still keep in touch with.” – Will Friesen, (g’11), Currently a Graduate Student in Chemistry at the State University of New York at Buffalo
