As a declared Chemistry Major you must complete 12 seminars prior to your graduation. These seminars show you the breadth of the chemical related enterprise, highlight research and inquiry occurring at universities, private and public companies, government laboratories, research stations and more, and provide opportunities for your peers to communicate their work to you.
The deadline for Spring 2022 submission of webinar attendance forms will be May 18. There will be seminar cards at each seminar for you to complete. Please turn these in at the end of the seminar; to aid in record keeping we suggest taking photos of your seminar cards before turning them in, in case of conflicting data.
Errors and questions? Visit the Chem Dept Office at RNS 336 or email Stacey at email@example.com.
This is non negotiable. If you do not complete your seminar/webinar count, you will not graduate. More information can be obtained on the Chemistry Major Moodle page: https://mdl.stolaf.edu/course/view.php?id=7519¬ifyeditingon=1
Below is a list of upcoming seminars. This list may be updated as the year progresses.
