Chemistry faculty member, Dr. George Lauterbach, spent part of his winter break in Mexico.  He was able to find and photograph this beautiful bird, a squirrel cuckcoo.  This large and long-tailed cuckoo grows to 16-20 inches and weighs about 4 oz.  


A week before the start of each semester, faculty gather to discuss plans for the new semester.  This January, a new approach to our upper level integrative labs was discussed, upcoming award winners were chosen, and new ways to help freshmen and sophomore students be more successful in their coursework were brainstormed.  Everyone is excited to start the Spring 2016 semester!

Congratulations to our December graduates!  We are so proud of their accomplishments and wish them much success in all that they do!

Chemistry faculty members, Dr. Jeremy Burkett (left) and Dr. Will Harrell (right) were among the new assistant professors in the School of the Sciences who attended the Council of Undergraduate Research Conference in Denver last weekend.  The initiative was supported by the National Institutes of Health through the SU Office of Sponsored Programs and Research.  The goal of the conference was to give new faculty members  the opportunity to learn from and discuss with experienced faculty how to establish and manage a research program with undergraduates.  Drs. Burkett and Harrell reported that the conference was excellent and that they greatly benefitted from this experience.

The School of the Sciences hosted an Information Session about applying and succeeding in graduate school.  The session featured faculty members from the School of the Sciences, Dr. Will Harrell (Chemistry), Dr. Jeremy Burkett (Chemistry), Dr. Mark Branson (Mathematics) and Dr. Mark Norris (Biology).  Chemistry senior Kristen Cassetta thought that all of the panelists were extremely helpful.  They each had different and unique experiences in graduate school and their advice regarding networking with professors before entering graduate school was extremely beneficial.
