Many of our Chemistry and Biochemistry Bachelor degree and PhD recipients joined us for a celebration of their accomplishments on Friday, June 11, 2010.  Over 300 bachelor degrees and 40 PhD degrees were completed during the academic year 2009-10.  The event was held in the HUB Ballroom with over 1000 students and their guests in attendance.  The keynote address was given by Dr. Susan Solomon, a noted PhD Chemist and a leader in the field of Atmospheric Sciences.  In 2007 Dr. Solomon served as co-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  In 2008 the IPCC and Al Gore Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize.
