How has being a Chemistry graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"The Duke Chemistry program not only taught me all about chemistry but also gave me the skills and experience I needed to succeed in the next steps of my career."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Chemistry programs? 

"Explore as much of the field of chemistry as you can. Chemistry probably has a lot more to offer than you realize and much more than can be covered in your core classes! Be willing to explore not only other sub-fields, but careers in chemistry outside of lab coats and beakers."
