The Cal Lutheran Experience

Working with Dr. Kingsbury has been eye-opening, to say the least. Every day has been an adventure in learning all the advance techniques professional chemists employ in expertly manipulating materials. My experience has grown greatly since the start of my research endeavors.

I really appreciated the professors' efforts to diversify the reading lists and ensure that many cultures and perspectives were well-represented. As a Latina, I cannot say that I had read Latin-American literature before my classes at Cal Lutheran, where professors made a conscious effort to feature an array of voices.

My internship with the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management prepared me greatly for my next steps after Cal Lutheran. Working side by side with a geologist, geophysicist, and petroleum engineer has given me insight into the industry I couldn't have previously imagined. This experience is helping me prepare for graduate school.
