Maria Lesniewski ’20

Schering-Plough Undergraduate Research Scholarship
Caldwell University
Major: Chemistry and Mathematics

When Maria Lesniewski enrolled at Caldwell University, she didn’t want to pigeonhole herself into one field. So she chose to double-major, while gaining a strong foundation in the liberal arts. That strategy has paid off with a full-time job right after graduation as a chemical specialist at L3Harris Technologies, Inc.: “it was my liberal arts education – core classes, public speaking, and knowledge on variety of topics – that impressed employers. Technical details are different at every job and must be relearned, but communication is a golden skill.”
