Inorganic Chemistry has been my favorite class because it allowed me to make my own decisions in lab, which affected the outcomes of the experiments.

MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY
My mother graduated from Mount Union. The community is very tight and there is always something to do. My favorite place on campus is in front of Elliot Hall by the lake because it is peaceful. People are involved in campus life, so you can meet almost everyone if you really want to.
The campus is beautiful and the faculty is willing to work with you to accomplish your goals. They not only teach you the knowledge you need for your degree, but the skills necessary to learn quickly once you find employment. The liberal arts education teaches you to think in different ways to solve problems, which in the end makes you better at solving problems in your field.
I chose to major in chemistry and history because they were my favorite subjects in high school. My favorite professor at Mount, Dr. Robert Ekey, managed to make physics fun, which is no easy task.
Making up my own synthesis reactions in Inorganic Chemistry has been my favorite hands-on experience at Mount so far. Inorganic Chemistry has been my favorite class because it allowed me to make my own decisions in lab, which affected the outcomes of the experiments.
My dream job would be working as a museum curator where I could use my skills in history and chemistry. Plus, I really like going to museums and seeing parts of history, so being able to manage history to show people would be a blast.
