Fellowship Site: School of Education, Merrimack College
Kevin Nguyen Chastain is from Orange County, California. He attended California State University, Fullerton where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry. Chastain did not realized that he wanted to go into Higher Education until he noticed how limited the resources were for the students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) field. In this case, he decided to pursue his master’s in hopes of one day creating multiple programs the student of stems can join and utilize to enrich their college experience.
Chastain is one of three Graduate Fellows in the School of Education at Merrimack College. His responsibilities are working with current Graduate Fellows, alumni fellows, faculty/staff, and community partners to launch “Follow a Fellow,” facilitating events for the School of Education such as the Careers for the Common Good Recruitment Fair, Open Houses, assisting with grant proposals for potential funding, and many more.
Kevin Nguyen Chastain’s Testimonial
“Honestly, being in the Higher Education Program has opened my eyes in a lot of ways, good ways. It has definitely validated my purpose of going into the field of Higher Education. The faculty and staff are very supportive towards the graduate students. My favorite class thus far has to be the College Student Development, learning about the different theories of student development and seeing how that applies to students. Overall, I am enjoying my time here.”
