Good Chemistry

Felician College students Kelsi Ludwigsen and Angel Trigoso accept their NJIC awards.

Two Felician College students recently received recognition from the New Jersey Chemistry Institute (NJIC) for their exemplary academic achievements.

Kelsi Ludwigsen, a Biology major (Chemistry minor and Biochemistry Concentration), and Angel Trigoso, a Biology major (Chemistry minor), are both senior students who were nominated for the award by Dr. Alfredo Castro, Associate Professor and Coordinator of Chemistry and Physical Sciences at Felician College. Ms. Ludwigsen and Mr. Trigoso received their awards at a dinner earlier this month.

Since 1950, through its Student Awards Program, the NJIC has honored outstanding seniors majoring in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or a related chemical science at New Jersey’s public and private colleges and universities. This award is given to students who are nominated and chosen by their department faculty members, in recognition of their demonstrated ability, leadership, and excellence in the chemical sciences. 

The NJIC annually awards certificates of achievement to senior undergraduates who demonstrate an outstanding record of achievement, ability, leadership, and character.
