In addition to providing an outstanding education in scientific principles, Lyman Briggs College teaches its students how to actually BE scientists, by requiring that they take courses in the history, logic and philosophy of science. In 1971 we read Thomas Kuhn's "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions", fifteen years before Kuhn's concept of "paradigm shifts" came to be used as a teaching tool by the general public. My professor, Dr. Robert Snow, used this "paradigm shift" concept in counselling me to consider other options besides teaching Biology. In 1974 I took his advice, switched gears, and became an environmental lawyer for the newly created U.S. EPA, where I received awards as their lead counsel on the first case ever brought under Superfund and as lead counsel on the largest settlement in the history of U.S. EPA. As a "residential college" within a large university, Lyman Briggs provides a very valuable and unique educational experience.

As a member of one of the first Lyman Briggs classes, I have found that the Lyman Briggs experience lasts a life time. The academic opportunities are phenomenal. The experiences beyond academics such as human interaction, communication, community awareness, self awareness, and building of self confidence make this environment extraordinary. The personal impact for me was so significant that, when I could share financially, I decided to "pay it forward". I established an endowed scholarship in Lyman Briggs.
