Dear Dr. Popson:
back, I'm very glad I chose to attend Wesleyan. I thoroughly enjoyed my four
Thank you for the personal attention you gave from the moment I began my studies
until the day I graduated. I was challenged your broad range of
classes and labs, but you were available to guide me through
them. That personal attention is a rarity, especially in highly technical
programs of study.
Upon graduation from Wesleyan, I began my graduate work in Chemical
Engineering at Georgia Tech. The
coursework and research projects at Georgia Tech were not a problem.
The same held true for Wesleyan classmates who chose to pursue graduate degrees such as
Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The fundamental
principles learned in the classrooms and laboratories at Wesleyan prepared all
of us very well for graduate school.
After graduating from Georgia Tech with my Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, I
began my career with DuPont. I am currently a Division Engineer working on
Teflon products at the DuPont plant in my hometown of Parkersburg, W.Va. My
responsibilities include improvements in the current production process as
well as research and development of new polymers. I continue to learn
something new every day, just as I did at Wesleyan.
