Alumni cubes

"I had an unforgettable experience as a graduate student and amazing good fortune at MSU.  There was nothing like working in a hot, non-air conditioned lab all day, then going down to the Gallatin to dive into a pool of cool, clear, blue water.  Or trodding through the snow to my research site on a little creek in the valley where, miraculously, bugs were growing that solved a decades old problem of bio-corrosion. Skiing, bicycling, hiking; early morning breakfasts on Main Street; trips to Yellowstone and Glacier and Pony.  It was all a gift."
Wayne H. Dickinson, Ph.D., Chemistry, 1996
Principal Scientist, Kemira Chemicals
