Advice to Incoming Students

Do not worry if you do not have a specific career goal in mind when you come to Taylor. Start with a subject you like and explore the possibilities—there are so many more than you think.

Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

I enjoy teaching because I like helping others see the wonder of God in chemistry. Taylor is a great size to facilitate a lot of possibilities but still have time and space for personal interactions with students.
