"You use the equipment one-on-one with your professor rather than with someone you don't know, or by yourself...it's a much more personal type of education. The faculty are interested in you getting the most out of your experience."

Chemistry Career Opportunities - Outcomes

Recent Loras graduates have gone on to a variety of careers, professional schools and graduate schools with:

Loras College Chemistry / Biochemistry Scholarship

The alumni and friends of the Loras chemistry department recognize that chemistry has greatly enhanced their lives. Therefore, to encourage others to pursue a career in chemistry or biochemistry, they have established a four-year scholarship in the amount of $1000 ($250 each year). The award is offered to prospective first-year students who have the greatest potential for achievement in chemistry or biochemistry.
