Front-page article in the Herald Journal describes the demonstration duel between our Chem Club and their Physics counterpart last night.

Our students also recently received a Commendable award from the ACS.  The award letter, attached, includes some data about the number of student chapters that submitted activity reports and the number of  awards ACS gave out this past year. Special thanks go to Lisa Berreau for her work as faculty advisor to the group, and to Owen Price (left on the below picture), this year’s president.
