The colorful and explosive presentations are designed to be visually interesting and exciting, as well as illustrative of important but easily understood chemical concepts. Our faculty and students take great pride in this event and are always excited to see a full house! Parents, please feel free to bring your children. Many faculty members have done that at our past presentations and it was enjoyed by all.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at our public presentation.

Registration for Spring/Withdrawal deadline

In order to register for spring courses, students must consult with their advisors and obtain clearance to register between Monday, October 24, and Friday, October 28.

As preparation for this meeting, you should review your progress toward meeting course requirements and create a list of possible courses for the upcoming semester. To do this, use the Academic Evaluation feature in WebAdvisor and/or the graduation requirement form for your major, available at

You should also check your WebAdvisor account to learn when you may begin registering for your classes. After logging in, click on “Registration Status and Time.” For most students, this screen will indicate that they may register at some time between October 31 and November 7. However, please note that some students may see a “hold,” which restricts them from registering. If you are one of these students, you must clear up the related matter before you may register.

Finally, don’t forget that the deadline for withdrawing from a course is Oct. 26.

If you have any questions, please contact your academic advisor.
