Awards and Graduates

Once again it is time to say goodbye to another group of excellent students. This year our department awarded 2 chemistry (BS) and 6 biochemistry (BS) degrees. Some will continue their study of chemistry or biochemistry in graduate school, some will enter new fields of study such as pharmacy, and still others will bravely head into the workforce. We also want to recognize those students who were awarded departmental scholarships or awards this year.
