Departmental Seminar Series

Our chemistry and physics seminar series usually meets in Room 059 in the Science Building at 11:00 AM on Tuesdays, but some seminars will take place using Zoom instead of in-person. Students interested in attending graduate school are encouraged to meet with the academic seminar speakers on Tuesday afternoon.
