Quotes

"By providing both formal and informal opportunities for first generation students to connect with faculty and staff, who are willing to serve as mentors and to interact with other first generation students, we are adding another layer of support to the many ways in which the Colleges demonstrate a commitment to helping students define their experience in our community" Pierce says
...According to the Chemical Heritage Foundation, the company's "Optical Instruments Division made the wafer-thin, transparent, gold coating on Neil Armstrong's helmet visor used in the Apollo 11 moon landing, and in 1976 a Perkin-Elmer mass spectrometer arrived on Mars with NASA's Viking lander."
Azour, who is studying international relations and sociology, says she left London feeling "more prepared for the professional world than ever before, thanks to the internship and the constructive feedback gained from my coworkers. Learning so much in the marketing role I had, I was able to gain skills I will take with me next summer, in another marketing internship. By the time I graduate, I hope to have enough experience to go out into the workforce, fully prepared for a marketing role in any industry."
"Ms. Newson is a wonderful young professional and joins several other past ACE recipients in reflecting a commitment to others and to our community" McCaffrey said
