Potential Careers

“Some sparked my excitement for science by blowing up pumpkins and making glow-in-the-dark slime. Some devoted hours outside the classroom to guide me through difficult assignments. Some opened up doors to invaluable research opportunities and pushed me to pursue them. But ALL of the professors in the Georgetown College Chemistry Department believed in my potential and worked relentlessly, not only to teach, but to invest in my personal life and future."
