Following the distinguished alumni seminar, our faculty, staff, and alumni gathered for dinner in the Skyroom, Holmes Student Center.
Friday, October 14, 2011
On Friday morning, the group reconvened in La Tourette Hall. Professor Emeritus Dennis Kevill began by sharing his historical account of the Department of Chemistry, beginning back in 1959. Professor Carnahan followed by discussing the current state and recent trends of the department.
The morning concluded with a tour of the department, which included both old stomping grounds, as well as, newer labs and facilities. They visited with Dr. Heike Hofstetter in the Analytical Lab, and with Professors Timothy Hagen and C.T. Lin to learn about the research being conducted in their laboratories. (Tour photos below)
