Chemistry Department Scholarship Awards Night

The Department of Chemistry has a proud history of involving our students in our teaching and research programs, and this tradition continues. The opportunity for students to work in a research lab, or as a demonstrator in a teaching lab, provides valuable career-related experience. Our faculty are excellent mentors for these students, providing guidance and encouragement, in addition to “supervision”. Our research students regularly present their work at local, national, even international conferences, and frequently win awards for their presentations. Many of our students proceed directly to careers in industry, while others proceed to graduate school for additional education in Biochemistry and Chemistry. The employment expectations for chemistry graduates are currently excellent, and getting better. Our graduates have been extremely successful in either gaining career-related employment upon graduation, or proceeding to the professional school or graduate school of their choice.

As a primarily undergraduate institution, we are proud of the extra attention that we are able to focus on our undergraduates. Relatively small class sizes allow excellent interaction between students and faculty. Senior students are allowed direct access research-quality instruments and equipment in the laboratory portions of their courses. Interested students are able to become integrated into the teaching and research functions of the department, through employment as markers/demonstrators or as summer research assistants.
