From Science to Service, Allison Says that Chestnut Hill College Offers it All.


Hometown: Orwigsburg, PA

Major: Biochemistry

Minor: Mathematics

Future Plans: Ph.D. in biochemistry with a career in research


“I chose Chestnut Hill College because it had my major, obviously, but also because I could do everything at Chestnut Hill. I could become a Resident Assistant. I could play on the volleyball team. I could get involved with other activities like founding the Chemistry Club, serving on the Chestnut Hill Activities Team and helping with the community service program, Joy of Sox. I am doing everything I wanted to when I went to college and I am still getting a wonderful holistic education. I really love everyone in the chemistry and biology departments. My professors share with their scholarly experience so that I know what to expect in my career and that I can formulate a better idea of what direction I want my own path to go.

Thank you to all the Scholarship Gala donors for making my education at Chestnut Hill possible. People like you have made my education more affordable and given me the chance to spend time getting involved on campus, not spending my free time working."
