About Granite


I have a BA in English with a minor in Geology from QC. I've graduated with an MS in Geology from URI.

If you want to know more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/secretlife/scientists/alexandrea-bowman/

I was lucky enough to be accepted into Sigma Xi as an undergraduate for my research & attending several conferences. I was also accepted into the CUNY Pipeline Program & the MSPHDs program.

I founded & was the president of a student chapter of both AISES & SACNAS as a graduate student. I also volunteered (& hope to continue to do so) for programs with at risk children.

I am very lucky to have found CollegeNET. Even though CollegeNET changed their rules, the money I won paid for my last credit so I could finish my MS, it also helped me pay off my Perkins loan completely, paid off all of the interest that had accrued on my undergraduate loans while I was in graduate school, & even paid down a bit of the principal. I still have $36,200 to go, but that would have been a lot higher without CollegeNET ($15,000 higher).

I've met some great people here. CollegeNET is about the community, not just the money.

There's are two CNet Members Facebook pages & if you have Facebook you should join. Friend me on Facebook, I'm pretty easy to find: www.facebook.com/alexandreabowman

I am still looking for full-time work, but in the meantime I am volunteering for a few things.

Picture note: My matron of honor (and cousin) and myself the day of my wedding.
