Our laboratories will offer a combination of virtual experience, simulation and demonstration to provide as close to a true laboratory experience as possible.
Students taking Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Geology can expect a rigorous curriculum that will provide both lecture and laboratory experience yet maintain social distancing.
Student Clubs & Organizations
Chemistry students may also be interested in other clubs and organizations in Natural Sciences, throughout CASL, and across campus.
The Chemistry Club is a good way to
- meet current students and faculty, and make new friends.
- find out about undergrad. programs and graduate school.
- get information on possible job opportunities.
- have a whole lot of fun.
