The Case Western Reserve University community is known for thinking beyond the
possible. Each week, this column aims to capture a slice of campus life.

Q: What are you majoring in?
A: Chemistry.

Q: What made you decide to major in that?
A: When I was in high school, I had a really good chemistry teacher. I took first-year chemistry, then AP chemistry, and I really enjoyed it. My teacher explained things really well and always pushed me to do my best. I could always go to him outside of class and ask him about anything regarding school, family, relationships. At the beginning of the year, he talked about his childhood, and I grew up in the same neighborhood in the suburbs of Chicago—it wasn’t the best neighborhood. It made it easier to identify with him.

Q: Have you been able to find a professor like that at CWRU?
A: No I don’t really talk to my professors personally. I don’t talk to them unless if I’m asking questions.

Q: Are there any changes you’re planning on making this year?
A: I hope to be more open with my friends and my professors. I think I should reach out more, because I didn’t reach out much last year. I think I should be more open to everything on campus.
