The Chemistry & Biochemistry Department offices and laboratories are located on the third and fourth floors of the Science Addition.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
We have various sizes of classrooms from the largest, which is designed to hold about 90 students, to the two main lecture halls (right), which are designed for about 60 students.
Chemistry is an experimental science. Thus, the laboratory portion of General Chemistry (CHEM 110) allows students to experimentally investigate topics that are covered in the classroom.
The laboratory used for Organic Chemistry is equipped with twelve six-foot hoods, each shared by a pair of students. Each student has their own glassware, both standard and microscale organic ground glassware. Organic laboratory sections meet four hours once a week.
The biochemistry laboratory is used for both Biochemistry I and II labs.
Our students have the opportunity to experience the phenomenon of undergraduate research in a meaningful way. The synthetic research labs contain various new and upgraded equipment.
