Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Students and faculty report that they are having an amazing time at the National ACS Meeting in San Diego- learning, meeting scientists and networking.  The SU Club won its award (top picture) and students have been presenting their research posters (pictures above).  Everyone from SU enjoyed a meal with Dr. Jim Damewood, Chemistry Advisory Board member (bottom picture).  

Six chemistry and biochemistry students and 2 faculty members are on their way to San Diego for the National American Chemical Society Meeting.  The students are presenting posters of their chemistry research projects.  In addition, the American Chemical Society Club (ACS) will receive an award, for the third year in a row, for being an overall great club!  Everyone is looking forward to attending scientific talks, meeting friends and colleagues, and networking!

The Geraldine and Sam Dell Scholarship for Excellence and Character in the Sciences was established in 2012 by Sam and Geraldine Dell, in order to recognize and encourage science and math students in the School of the Sciences. Each year, a rising senior in the School of the Sciences is selected for the Dell Scholarship.   The student chosen is one who consistently achieves excellence through a strong work ethic and sense of integrity, demonstrates an exceptional ability to work in teams and contributes to the personal and professional development of team members, and shows an appreciation for cultural diversity.  Congratulations to junior chemistry major Blake Ford, who was honored as the 2016-17 Dell Scholarship recipient at the annual Dell Lecture.   Blake is shown above with SU President, Dr. Kevin Manning, and Mr. Sam Dell.

The Chemistry Department is excited to share our new sweatshirts!  Designed by graduate assistant, Shelby Litz (CHEM '15, FSCI '16), the sweatshirts are warm, cozy and very popular with students and faculty!

Chemistry and biochemistry majors spend time in the laboratories each semester to gain hands-on experience.  We strongly believe that students learn science by doing it.  These pictures represent some recent student lab work.
