Alumnus Dor Shoshan and his family have much to celebrate. Dor graduated with honors in May from Chapman University’s Biological Sciences program. He received both the Outstanding Senior Award in Biological Science as well as the Ronald M. Huntington Award for Outstanding Scholarship representing the graduating senior with the most distinguished record of academic scholarship.
“What should our hashtag be this year?” “#ChapmanIFT2015″? “#IFT2015″? “#ChapmanDoesChicago”? This is the question students ask each other as we get prepared for the annual “Food Convention” as I like to call it. This past July, Chapman University’s food science graduate students and faculty attended the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Meeting and Expo in
In a big year for Schmid College, alumna Elizabeth Berrigan ’14 was among the few awarded the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in Physics and Astronomy – Theoretical Physics. NSF bestowed the grants to only the top 7% of applicants from an already elite pool. Berrigan, who double-majored in Physics and Biochemistry at Schmid College, said she felt Chapman University played a significant
Schmid College saw its current students and alumni alike receive prestigious distinctions for the 2015 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Of over 16,000 applicants vying for grants to fund their research, only 2,000 received awards.
Schmid College did not have to wait long for its young Environmental Science and Policy program to sprout an impressive alumna. Madison Hoffacker ’13, a recent graduate with a grass-roots foundation in the program, co-authored and published a paper in Nature Climate Change. Hoffacker was one of the first four students to officially declare a
This research story starts during my sabbatical leave way back in 2009. I talked two Chapman students — John Berriman ’11 and Daniel Goldstein — into taking a research-diving certification course so that we could go under water at night to present yucchy sea hares to lobsters inside and outside the USC Wrigley Marine Science
We caught up with alumna Rachael Gordon recently on what she has been up to since graduating from Chapman University in 2012 with a BS in Biological Sciences. She has certainly been busy! On May 14th, she will graduate from University of Southern California with her Masters of Public Health (MPH), emphasis in Epidemiology and
Rhondi Shigemura ’90 graduated from Chapman University with a M.S. in Food Science and Nutrition. After hearing about Chapman University through her former colleagues at ConAgra, Shigemura looked into pursuing her food science studies here while still working full-time. Shigemura now works at Jenny Craig as the Director of Research and Development in Carlsbad, California. She has, “oversight
Elizabeth Berrigan is one of Chapman’s shining stars. Starting this fall she’ll be aiming for a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at State University of New York at Stony Brook. She obtained her first degree from Chapman last May in biochemistry, and her second Chapman degree last December in physics. This semester, she is completing research at MIT and in January,
The 8-year-old girl had a decayed front tooth, discolored almost to the gum line. In the African city slum where she lived, such a disfigurement was essentially a curse that would repel marriage suitors and crush her prospects for any kind of hopeful future.Then the dentists arrived. They treated and restored the tooth. The little
