News

Dear alumni,

            Welcome to the second installment of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry’s alumni newsletter. Much has transpired in the department since the launching of our inaugural newsletter, and I’m delighted to be able to bring you up to date.   It’s been a great year for us, marked by a strong cadre of 39 baccalaureate, 19 doctoral, and eight master’s degree recipients.  Our faculty corralled an abundance of awards and honors that are detailed below.  The department welcomed a new faculty member, but sadly bid farewell to Fr. Walter.  We were honored to host the family of Nicholas Angelotti (B.S., 1950), as they helped us launch an undergraduate research fund in his name.

            Please know that we here in the department are proud of our alumni and welcome opportunities to learn of your accomplishments. Simply send an email to our assistant chair, Mary Prorok and we will do our best to incorporate items of interest into future newsletters.  In the meantime, I wish you an enjoyable remainder of the summer. Stay cool and stay in touch!
