The End is Just the Beginning

December 17, 2014 by

Going into the class without being a neurochemistry minor or even a chemistry major for that matter, I felt as if I was blindly walking into a course which would be entirely over my head.  For the first several weeks, that was exactly the case.  It was as if I were thrust into a...

When I first signed up for Neurochemistry last spring, I simply took it because it was hitting two birds with one stone. I could use it as my elective course for my chemistry major and also complete my capstone class with it. I hadn’t taken any other neuroscience classes throughout my career at Concordia...

The Value of a Capstone

December 16, 2014 by

Capstone classes are all designed to be just that, a capstone. They are supposed to take what you have learned in four years of lectures, tests, and study groups and apply them to one goal. In Neurochemistry, that goal was to find, read, understand, and finally communicate scientific literature. I’m sure we all thought...

Where do I begin?  Last spring when I was registering for classes, I somehow had in my mind that I needed to take this class.  That for some reason, this class was the required class for my chemistry major, and no other capstone class would compare.  Fast forward to now, and I learned my...

Neurochemsitry in Review

December 16, 2014 by

Neurochemistry  - it sounds like a lot to wrap your brain around (see what I did there), and it is. I guess I could say I had no idea what to expect for this class. I chose it because it made the most sense to fulfill the senior capstone requirement and my chemistry elective....

My experience in Neurochemistry this past semester has been quite unique compared to other courses I’ve taken here at Concordia. With a very minimal background in neuroscience coming into the class, I was very worried about how I would do and how much I would be able to understand. But after building a background...

If you had told my freshman self that I would select Neurochemistry as the capstone for the end of my college career, I probably would have requested that you undergo a psychological evaluation. And yet here I sit, nearly four years later, reflecting on a truly transformative course. I will admit, as a Psychology...

No Fluff and Students Still Learn… Shocking CHEM 475 is notoriously known as Neurochemistry at Concordia college, and if I am looking to impress my friends outside of the sciences by the rigorous classes that I am taking, I sweet talk a little “neurochemistry,” and their jaws drop. It seems that the combination of...

When I signed up for neurochemistry last spring, I didn’t know what this class entailed. The only knowledge I had came from my cousin, who had taken it during the fall 2013 semester. She said that she enjoyed it, but it did include quite a lot of reading. I didn’t think much about it...

Wrapping it up

December 15, 2014 by

In order to satisfy the requirements to graduate at Concordia you must take a capstone class.  The goal of this class is to wrap up our education and allow us to realize how much we have matured and grown in understanding as students.  For me neurochemistry was the capstone class I elected to take. ...
