Craig Chamberlain, Mathematics ’13 went on to receive his M.S. in Data Analytics from Oregon State and currently works as a Budget Analyst. He chose PLU because he found it to be the best fit and recalls that he selected Natural Sciences because the Math professors kept convincing him to take more math courses! He also credits the PLU faculty with aiding him in the path he chose following graduation.
Craig’s fondest memory of being a student in Natural Sciences was learning how to write a research paper during capstone. He offers the following advice for current Natural Sciences students: “Learn programming languages (Python, R, etc.)!” Craig also encourages current students to utilize office hours because that was one thing he neglected while attending PLU and believes it was a terrible choice.
