Thurs Nov 20 2008

Dr. Atkinson gave a very informative and entertaining presentation about his research and career paths.

We voted on a t-shirt design and Matt will have prices for you next time. It would be great if everyone had one. We could show our spirit and stand out by all wearing the red shirt on a certain day. This could attract more active members.

We have decided on a bowling night for Thursday January 22 2009. This will be a great chance for everyone to come out, bowl, enjoy some food and/or drinks. I will call to book lanes. Please let me know if you plan on coming (for numbers). I will take a poll at the next meeting Thursday January 8 2008 - same time, same place.

Thurs Nov 6 2008

We heard from three of the four grad students about their experiences working in their labs. Unfortunately we ran out of time for the last presentation, and so it has been postponed to the next meeting.

Mole Day

The first chemistry club meeting happened to fall on Mole Day!
The executive members for this year were chosen:
  • President – Laura Dodge
  • Vice President – Anna Krzywdzinski
  • Treasurer – Courtney Osborne
We discussed some social events we may want to plan. They include:
- inter-departmental ultimate Frisbee or another sport (chem vs bio)
- skating
- a club Christmas party

We also plan on ordering club t-shirts for our members.

We plan on having some professors come in to talk to us about their research. Also, it would be nice to have a wine and cheese type of event at which students could get to know the chemistry professors casually.

In two weeks, we will have a meeting at which some graduate students will talk about their research and how they got there. This will be a good chance for undergraduate members to learn how their thesis and graduate studies will work.
