Dr. Anthony Harmon
Title: Adjunct Professor of Chemistry
Degree: Bethany Nazarene College (now SNU) - B.S.; Purdue University - M.S.; Oklahoma State University - Ph.D.
Being analytical by nature, Dr. Harmon’s teaching and research have naturally specialized in Analytical Chemistry. He has worked on several wildlife forensic analytical techniques that protect God's world and help enforce man's laws.
After teaching at a state university for 25 years, "It is a pleasure to teach at a Christian university," Dr. Harmon said. "The people (students, staff and faculty) are what make OC special."
A special OC moment occurred one day as he prepared for class at the front of the classroom. The students were taking their seats and talking about a one-page paper due that day. One of the students said, "I didn’t write much, but I learned a lot."
Learning is the goal and learning is fun (but work), and Dr. Harmon tries to communicate that concept to every class. For him, every day that he learns something is a good day. He believes the more you know, the better you can fulfill God’s purpose for your life. While we each have to work out our own unique path in life, we each are to lift up Christ.
