The Chemistry faculty at UNC Asheville provides the undergraduate student with an individualized experience, thanks to small class sizes and small student-teacher ratios. Every student's needs and expectations are met, and personally assigned research projects help apply his or her knowledge of chemistry with analytical lab experience. I feel my education and future is in good hands with this department. - Charlotte Bissette, Class of 2013
