Welcome to My E-Folio

My name is Alex Buck.  I grew up in Cedar Rapids, IA and graduated from Linn-Mar High School.  I am currently a sophomore at Iowa State University, but it is only my first year in college.  I’m working toward my B.S. degree in Chemistry where I hope to continue on and get a Ph.D.

I would like to work in a lab and do research and development for a chemical company who works with polymers, plastics, and organics.  My favorite subjects in high school and college are of course my chemistry classes, along with calculus, physics, and band.  I play the saxophone in my spare time in three bands here at ISU.  I play tenor sax in the Marching Band and Symphonic Band.  I also play the alto in the Concert Band.  Music was, and still is a big part of my life.  I was in every band offered in my high school, including the jazz band, both show choir bands, and I was even the drum major of the marching band my senior year.  I hope ISU can show me new horizons and open new paths of knowledge.
