Richland scares me sometimes. I sit in the main lobby and picture a school shooter busting through the front doors. Other than that it’s pretty average. I would say about half of my professors actually taught me something. Their clubs lure you in as something to do on the side. And then they are asking money from you even though you only see these people once a month. The ladies at the student success front desk are the absolute worst! They bring in these bad attitudes or they ignore you. They will tell you that your advisor is too busy and will try to sign you up for your own classes. The best thing about Richland is the nice lady in financial aid. However, she told me this year I wasn’t receiving any aid.

It's a great place to go to school. The teachers are very friendly and willing to help you out. There isn't any on campus housing, but there is a lot of off campus housing and there is an office to help you find something if needed. I'm not into athletics or partying, so I can't say much about that. But the campus is beautiful and is well worth the experience of enrolling!
it was good. In this experiment we had three different test tubes which we then put equal amounts of each treated extracts. Then in different test tubes we used mixtures of guaiacol, turnip extract, buffer, and hydrogen peroxide to make several different solutions. After that we put different amounts of inhibitor in each pairs of test tubes. Also to calibrate the spectrophotometer we had to make a clear solution. After creating our unique solutions we had to mix them and watch the chemical reaction occur, once that happened we poured the solution in covettes and placed them in the spectrophotometer. After placing them in the spectrophotometer it graphed our results and we observed the rate of oxidation.
