Stephanie Savage

Is a senior bio-chemistry major. She loves the STEM Center. "Not only do the professors pass along their knowledge, but they pass along their passion for the subject - it helps you remember." She appreciates the opportunities to prepare PowerPoint presentations and posters: "This experience prepares you for graduate school, because this is how you present your research."
