Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel


Part 25:
My First University:
With a summer’s salary in my bank account, I was able to quit working as a salesman on weekends. This allowed me to concentrate on my studies, including physics and chemistry, both of which I aced. At the end of my sophomore year I was awarded a scholarship that took care of my tuition. I was now on an irrevocable pathway to a life of science.
