What Lena Says About this Program:
“I owe so much to the EIU Chemistry and Biochemistry Department for all of that I learned here as well as the opportunities and experiences I had while at EIU. Attending smaller classes taught by amazing professors was absolutely one of the best things about being a chemistry major at EIU. I felt as though I received one-on-one attention from the majority of my professors, who sought to ensure the best possible education for all of their students. Despite coming from a smaller school than many of my peers here in Chicago, I feel as though I received a very solid foundation for many concepts and subjects that were further expanded upon in medical school. Being able to be a part of a research group as an undergraduate researcher was another wonderful experience at the EIU Chemistry and Biochemistry Department.”
