Rie Schur

I would like to say that the science education that I received at SCC was first-class.  I felt extremely prepared in the sciences when I entered medical school.  You and Karen (Kreutzer) taught me how to think and approach problems scientifically, and the lab experience I received was definitely of university level or higher. Exposure to scientific databases and peer-reviewed research give students important practical experience and definitely prepared me for my current studies…I could gush endlessly about you and Karen and the other science and math professors as SCC.  I really miss my studies at Shoreline.  I am lucky that I chose SCC for my pre-req work.”

Michelle Shen Yan

“I think our organic chemistry courses have definitely prepared me for more advanced science classes at UW. I really miss how I could directly ask you a lot of questions during your office hours, which is not easy to achieve in a big university. I also miss the interaction and discussion in our classroom, which I have not seen in my biochemistry class with 300+ students.”
