B.G. Loper

Class of 2018 Written by Michael Lane
  • You just graduated (’18) and have landed your first job.  Can you tell us a little about it?
I’m a little overwhelmed in a good way. I will be a lab technician in a major chemical company. It’s a very good entry-level job in my field of study which is something not very many recent graduates can say. I feel extremely blessed and honored.
  • What do you think was the most valuable aspect of your E&H education?
I think the most valuable aspect of my education at E&H is kind of two parts to the same whole. I appreciate the relationships that students are able to form with faculty and my ability to have true mentors in my professors/advisors that shaped my life immeasurably. The other part of it is the outside of the box thinking that is encouraged, but that can only happen from a good relationship with an advisor/professor, so it’s still part of the same reason.
  • What advice would you give to current students?
Make use of the incredible resources that are available to you. Visit your professors as often as you’re able and study/do research under their direction as well.

Extracurricular Activities:

I was in Greek Life, blue key national honor’s society, Alpha Psi Omega honors theater fraternity, spiritual life, both choirs , resident advisor, and orientation leader.
