Chemistry and Biochemistry News

In honor of Halloween, chemistry professor, Dr. Jeremy Burkett gave a fun and informative presentation titled “Vampires: Fact or Fiction?”. The presentation discussed biochemical, psychological, and sociological phenomena that could have led to the legends about vampires which exist in every culture. Student and faculty laughed along with the logical, though exaggerated, tales among townspeople that contributed to the image of vampires that we still use today.

Maybe next Halloween, we will be lucky enough to get a lecture on werewolves!

Happy Halloween from the Chemistry Department!  Students, faculty and staff enjoyed dressing up!  Here are some of today's costumes.

SU freshman and transfer students participated in the annual LEGO challenge. This event allowed students to create innovative structures out of LEGOs that symbolized the 3 tiers of Career Architecture which include personal direction, discipline expertise, and professional know-how. Special congratulations go to Dr. Harrell’s Chemistry SCI 100 class for being the First Place Winner! The class earned all possible 145 points based on what they designed and how it was presented.

Chemistry and biochemistry alumni turned out in force for the first-ever Affinity Reception for alumni of the School of the Sciences. Alumni and faculty were thrilled to see so many familiar faces and get caught up with each other.  Everyone shared updates on their lives and their careers.  An amazing time was had by all!

We're always happy when our alumni visit!  We were excited to see Kayla Bell (left, BS Biochem '16)  and Ginell McLean (right, BS Biochem '16) who came to visit us recently.  The big surprise was that Kayla brought her new baby, Mason, to meet everyone!  We were excited to welcome Mason to the SU Chemistry Family!
