Homecoming is a favorite time of year—the campus is beautiful, students are engaged in fall classes and activities, and we welcome thousands of Gusties back to campus. It’s a perfect time to gather our Chemistry students, faculty and alumni to learn about current research and receive updates from the Chemistry Department. We hope you can join us!
