|Alumni, let us hear from you.|
|My most valuable
experiences in the Biology Department at Kutztown were my opportunities to
do independent study. I was able to participate in the design of my
curriculum, more completely investigate my areas of interest, and work
side-by-side with my professors as they applied their science. Taking my new
knowledge and skills from the classroom to the field in collegial
interchange with such dedicated professors truly prepared me for my career.

wide range of classes offered by the Biology Department at Kutztown Univeristy,
as well as the opportunity to do research, laid a good foundation for the pursuit
of my doctorate."
- Cristen Rosch., Assistant Professor, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Kutztown University.
|"I am now working at Fox Chase Cancer Center full-time. I feel so prepared for the real world I cannot explain it. I am using genetics, physiology, immunology, neurology, virology, molecular biology, and cell biology. I compete well with the best technicians from all sorts of schools. Thanks for everything!!" - Jason Skipworth (Scientific Technician I)|
|"My experience at K.U. proved extremely valuable to my hiring and promotion at the Wolf Education and Research Center. Not only did I receive a vast amount of knowledge while at K.U., but I also gained the hands-on experiences necessary in my field of study. I am forever grateful to those professors who shared a genuine desire to help me accomplish my dreams." - Jeremy Heft, Pack Manager, Wolf Education and Research Center, Winchester, Idaho|
|"I find that my educational experience far exceeds that of some of my Ivy League colleagues. At K.U., I had performed advanced laboratory techniques on a weekly basis, while most of my colleagues had only read about them in a book. To say that I had an excellent experience studying science at K.U. is an understatement - it was probably the best decision I ever made." - Jason Grabert, Medical Student, Temple University|
K.U., my curiosity developed into a true desire for knowledge in Environmental
Sciences. Where there is a willing student there is a professor to mold that
enthusiasm into productive outlets. I was a laboratory assistant, an active
member of the Environmental Science Forum, and participated in the Greenhouse
Club, the Outdoor Club, and the Earth Day Committee. My degree topped off with
an internship at the Berks County Conservancy."
- Amanda Donahue, Environmental Scientist/Chem. analyst
|At many universities, grad. assistants teach the labs, and students rarely interact directly with their professors. At K.U., my professors taught both lectures and labs and were always available when I had questions about classes or career goals or just wanted to chat. I conducted three different research projects with three different professors. It's the personal attention that makes Kutztown special. - Shawn Barnes, Science teacher, Peace Corps, Western Samoa.|
Kutztown I learned current biological research techniques and the basic fundamentals
behind the science. I have been told by students at large universities that
they feel lost within their own major and feel like a number. This was not the
case at K.U. I feel the close interaction I had with the biology faculty helped
to ignite a fire in me that is still burning."
- Merrill Schaeffer, Ph.D., Research and Development Group Leader, Vaccine Deveolpment, Boehringer Ingelheim
|"I feel the small class size of the science courses at K.U. provides students with an intimate learning atmosphere that larger universities cannot match. In addition to being exceptional instructors, many of the biology faculty at K.U. became my mentors and contributed greatly to my development as a scientist." - Dave Golden, Senior Biologist, Endangered Species Program, New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.|
