2015 Graduates

Five of our students are graduating in May with a bachelor's degree in physics. All of their hard work has finally paid off, and the Physics Department would like to congratulate and support them as they face new challenges. Here are some of the plans our graduates have for the future:

Paul Miller

Plans: To marry his life partner, apply to medical schools, and do some extended mission work.  Longterm goal is to become either an orthopedist or a pediatrician. 

Paul started to pursue his undergraduate degree in 2011 and is now graduating with a biophysics degree. He has been with the department for the last four years and is always willing to help and cooperate. He has worked as a teaching assistant for physics lab, as a tutor for the department (coordinating the tutors for the past two years) and a student club officer.  The Physics Department awarded Paul a Senior Academic Excellence Award during the Senior Awards Banquet on April 5, to recognize his outstanding journey at Southern Adventist University. Paul plans to take a year off from school after graduating, and during this time he will get married,  study for the MCAT, and go with his wife on a mission project if the possibility arises. His ultimate goal is to go to medical school and become either an orthopedist or a pediatrician. We look forward to watching God use Paul in this next year and for many years to come.
