After serving in the U.S. Air Force for five years, Erin McCarn decided to start researching graduate programs. The more time she spent searching, the more she realized her passion for chemistry ran deep. An eastern U.S. native, McCarn picked Oregon State because of its proximity to her family and the diverse chemistry graduate research program.
