"Research is an exciting way to learn. It involves delving deeper into a subject than traditional textbook learning. For me, I find research so fascinating because it is something that you canít find on Google. The answer requires hours of studying, testing, and analyzing results."

Dylan Goto, B.S. Chemistry, Biology 2015
