Seminar this Wednesday during Chemia

Hello all,

This Wednesday, October 22nd, Professor Ziegler will be holding a seminar for the first half of our meeting. From 6-7 pm, Prof. Ziegler will talk about getting into undergraduate research on campus as well as the research that he is currently working on in his own lab. We will still be holding tutoring during the meeting but we will only be doing so from 7-8 pm, once Prof. Ziegler has finished his talk.

So, make sure you come to Chemia on Wednesday in SCI 294 for Professor Zeigler’s talk as well as for pizza, drinks, and tutoring. And as usual, we will still be holding a tutoring session on Tuesday in the SCI atrium from 5-7 pm.

Best of luck to those of you who have midterms this week, and we hope to see you at Chemia!

Hello all,

There will be a Chemia welcome back meeting on Wednesday, September 10th from 6-8pm in SCI 294, we would love to see some returning members as well as those new to Chemia. Come on by for some pizza, drinks, and chemistry talk.

We offer free tutoring on Tuesdays from 5-7 pm as well as on Wednesdays from 6-8pm in SCI 294. Our first tutoring session will be held on Tuesday, September 16th from 5-7 pm. Feel free to show up with your questions, no appointment necessary, and we’ll do our best to help you.

Chemia meetings/events will take different forms, sometimes a workshop, sometimes a guest speaker, sometimes just a space to talk chemistry. We will be organizing additional events to bring chemistry to the community, as well as to help out young aspiring chemists achieve their goals. If you have ideas, let us know!

Looking forward to a great semester here,

Let’s Get Down to Business…

You know what comes next, something about defeating the Huns. Or was it something about prepping your resumé to apply for all the fabulous chemistry jobs available to BU chemistry graduates? Either way, join Chemia this Wednesday 3/5 as we host Katinka Csigi, an expert in the department on just this sort of stuff. She will give a brief presentation and then we will have a discussion/ Q&A about all things chemistry jobs related.

All seniors are highly encouraged to attend, it will be a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the application process or about your resumé. Juniors and underclassmen feel free to attend as well, you may get a few tips you find useful in applying to internships!

Hope to see you there! See the link below for the event flier.
