Inside Moravian
June 15, 2017
With funds awarded through a grant from the Pittsburgh Conference Memorial National College Grants Program, the Moravian College biochemistry program purchased a NanoDrop spectrophotometer—the gold standard instrument of microscale spectrophotometry. Not only does this acquisition speed up the research process, but it also means that chemistry and biochemistry students will be working with the same type of instrument employed by researchers in top laboratories around the world.

Katie P. Desiderio, chair of the department of economics and business department and associate professor of management, knows that great outcomes can be achieved when people work together. “I am always scanning our world for opportunities to build bridges and bring meaningful connections to campus,” Desiderio says. And she saw one in an honors mentor program that pairs an alum with an honors student throughout the process of researching, developing, and defending a thesis.

The Sigma Tau Delta International Convention celebrates the various works students in the honor society completed over the year. This celebration recognizes poetry, memoir, fiction, nonfiction, and academic essays. It took place over four days this spring, and it gave English majors around the country an opportunity to challenge, debate, and learn from each other's work. 

I read my piece "Lost to this World" with a group of three other students who had similar themes to their essays. It was a great opportunity to share my work and to meet people that care about words as much as I do.
