Powell Seminar Series

The Department of Chemistry hosts the annual Powell Seminar Series as part of the academic course, Chemistry Seminar, for juniors. Presentations are given by current students, outside speakers and students in graduate programs. Offering valuable information on research, graduate school, and the chemical industry, presentations are typically held at 1:30 p.m. each Friday in the Gottwald Auditorium. Students who are not registered for the course are still welcome to attend the presentations. This year's seminar series is coordinated by Dr. Samuel A. Abrash.
