Krystal Chan didn’t make the dean’s honour roll in her first year, so reaching that goal in her second made it all the sweeter.
The biology major was one of more than 100 honour students on hand as the Faculty of Science celebrated its high-achieving undergraduates on Friday, September 9. The faculty also welcomed 67 new students who entered the University with an average of 90 percent or higher. The reception addressed by UWindsor president Alan Wildeman and computer science alumnus Ali Al-Aasm, founder of application developer Red Piston.
“It’s good to know that the administration and the faculty build pride by holding events like this for the students,” Chan said. “It’s a great way to honour the achievements of the students.”
Science undergrads received a total of more than $1 million in awards, scholarships and bursaries, said Marlys Koschinsky, dean of science. She personally congratulated each attend attendee and distributed messenger bags emblazoned with the Faculty of Science logo. Provost Leo Groarke added buttons reading “Science Genius in Action.”
