Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Chemistry Program
Name: Rachel Eason
Hometown: Huntsville, AL
Fact: I once had two girl gerbils. Then we found out that they weren’t both girls, and all of the sudden there were nine baby gerbils.
I chose to come to Belhaven because... I knew that I wanted to major in Chemistry, but I also wanted to be able to try a variety of different things. Belhaven was perfect for me because I could pursue my chosen course of study, but still take classes in art, dance, and music, all in a Christ-centered community.
One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... is Dr. Reid Bishop. He has been a huge part of my Belhaven experience. He makes learning fun, and is so dedicated to seeing his students succeed academically, professionally, and spiritually.
Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I've been brought to a place of confidence and faith in the Lord, and it's given me the ability to pursue His glory in my calling. No matter where I go from here, I will carry lessons learned in the Worldview Curriculum, in the laboratory, and in the relationships I have built here at Belhaven.
One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Empowering
