I recently graduated with my bachelor’s from WP and chose to stay here for my master’s degree largely because of the hands-on learning we do. I have used and learned all the machines in our chemistry labs, but friends at other universities tell me they aren’t able to do the same. With all my experience, I know I’ll have really good job opportunities.
