The chemistry department kicked off the school year with games and cookies last week to bring students and faculty together. There was fun and laughter as majors from all years came for a little down time. It's a great opportunity to meet and get to know your faculty on a more personal level. Cookies with Chemists meets every other Wednesday at 2 PM in Solve Center D. The next event is on September 13th. Hope to see you there!
