Meet Marin, a chemistry major minoring in mathematics. Marin is also the president of the Scientista, a club for women in STEM, co-president of Crochet for a Cause (a group that turns plastic bags into bed mats for people experiencing homelessness), vice president of the Chemistry Club, a member of Alpha Sigma Nu (the national Jesuit honor society), a chemistry tutor at The Study, and a general chemistry lab teaching assistant. Marin, who was inspired to declare her major in chemistry thanks to a course she took with Timothy McNeese, Ph.D., professor emeritus of chemistry, says her favorite thing about Loyola is the number and breadth of opportunities she has been afforded, both academically and through exploring Baltimore. One of her proudest moments is when she was awarded a Hauber Summer Research Fellowship, during which she conducted scientific research over the summer and then presented her findings to the Loyola community. The senior from Danbury, Conn., plans to pursue her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry and hopes to one day run her own research lab that would focus on the topics and fields that she is passionate about.

Loyola forces you outside your comfort zone, which is where I think I've grown the most.
