Student Spotlight: Kristin Kubelsky
Kristin Kubelsky can cite a number of reasons why she selected College of DuPage.
But one stands out above the others: the personal attention she receives from her professors, which is helping her succeed in the classroom.
"All of my Chemistry professors have been extremely helpful in making sure I understand all of the material presented," said Kubelsky. "Also Professor (Lubna) Haque, my Chemistry professor my first semester, provided me with numerous opportunities, helping me receive an internship with Argonne National Laboratory."
Kubelsky is pursuing her Associate in Science degree, focusing on chemistry. She then plans to transfer to Benedictine University and ultimately earn her doctorate. She is also considering chemical engineering as a career and may even look into physics, as long as her job pursues new innovations for the future.
Whichever path she takes, Kubelsky is sure to maintain contact with her professors and advises new students to do the same.
"Everyone I know who had attended COD always told me that it was a great school not only for financial reasons but also for the class environment and the amount of help the professors are willing to give you," she said. "Students considering COD should always make sure they ask their instructors for help if needed because they are always willing to do so!"
