Spring Semester Tutoring Times

Hi all,

For those of you who have been wondering where and when Chemia has been meeting this semester, I have updated our facebook page (BU Chemia) and this website to reflect the correct times which are as follows:

Mondays 5-7 pm in SCI 294
Thursdays 6-8 pm in SCI 296 (the graduate workroom next to SCI 294)

We hope to see you all there!

Chemia Halloween Party!

Hello all,

Come on by to our Chemia Halloween Party this Wednesday from 6-8 pm in SCI 294 for some fun Halloween themed demonstrations. We will also be providing delicious treats for all to enjoy. There will be tutoring available during the second half of the meeting (7-8 pm) for those who need it. And just as a reminder, we will still be holding tutoring on Tuesday from 5-7 pm in the SCI second floor atrium.

We hope to see you all there!

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!

Welcome Back!

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,

Kelly Demeo

January Meeting

There will be an informal Chemia meeting on Monday, January 23 from 6-8pm in SCI 294 so that we can all get to know each other a little better. There will be free food and drink, as there is for all meetings, so drop by and socialize for at least a little while!

Updates from the October Meeting

Thank you to everyone that attended Chemia’s October Meeting!! We’re really glad that we got such a good turn out at this meeting and would like to thank you all for coming, with especial thanks to Dr. Deborah Perlstein for her research presentation and to Dr. John Snyder for explaining the process for getting involved in research as an undergrad.

For anybody that couldn’t make it, here’s what you missed:

  • The Merck trip will be on Friday, December 2. See the tab above for more information.
  • How to go about joining a research group. The process is pretty easy–look up the different research projects at the Chemistry Research Website, see what you like best, and then contact a professor and ask to join their research group! The rest is paperwork that your new research advisor will be able to assist you with. For more information, feel free to contact Ben, Josh, Susie, or Ivan.

October Meeting

There will be a Chemia meeting on Monday, October 24th from 6-7 pm in SCI 294. At this meeting, Deborah Perlstein and Xin Chen will be present to discuss the research that they have been doing here at Boston University. With this, you can find out how to become involved in research as an undergraduate here at BU. Be sure to come, as there will be refreshments and interesting presentations! Also, we hope to further discuss our trip to Merck this fall at this meeting, so be sure to come if you want to find out more information!

Also, tutoring will begin at 7pm and will go on at least until 8pm. The Tuesday schedule will not be affected in any way by this.
