My years at USM were well spent. I had good classroom, laboratory, and teaching experiences. I enjoyed teaching so much that I went into academia and have not regretted it. I look back on those days with fondness for the program, the faculty, and the university, and I would (and do) encourage students to consider USM when searching for a place to expand their chemistry knowledge.
