Testimonials from Previous Fellows

“My time spent working in the biodiesel lab was very fulfilling and allotted me the experience to learn more about the possible direction I wanted to head in life. Additionally, I had a blast of a time working with everybody involved, to the point that I ended up spending my free time hanging out and just trying to learn as much as I could.” - Will Jarrott, 2009

“Working in the biodiesel allowed me to build new skills in problem solving.  It is extremely cool knowing that I participated in making fuel that Loyola’s biodiesel lab produces and sells. Being able to have hands-on learning experience will be one of the highlights in my college career.” -Michele Stein, 2010-11

"Sweet Experience!" - Kelly Graiziger, 2010-11
