Julie Hofstra

Julie is the 2014 recipient of the Outstanding Senior Award and is graduating with her B.S. in Chemistry. She was honored for her academic achievements by receiving Undergraduate Achievement Awards in Inorganic, Organic, and Analytical Chemistry within the past two years. During that time, she also spent many hours as an Undergraduate Research Assistant and LSAMP Scholar. In addition to her own studies, Julie has spent a portion of her college career as a Specialized Education Volunteer at Imperial Elementary School, developing her leadership skills as a board member for the Chemistry and Biochemistry Club, leading Supplemental Instruction sessions at CSUF, and serving as a mentor to Fullerton College STEM majors in their first semester. We are excited for Julie’s accomplishments and look forward to her future as she pursues her Ph.D. in Chemistry as an NSF fellow at the California Institute of Technology.
