This year the Chemistry Department has decided to have to two “Commencement” speeches given by two graduating students at our Chemistry and Biochemistry Graduation and Awards Recognition Celebration that will be held on Wednesday, June 11, at 8:30pm. We plan on selecting one biochemistry major and one chemistry major to each give brief (around 5 minutes) commencement speeches. If you are interested in being considered for one of the speakers, please send a one page abstract of what your speech will entail to firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, April 25. A committee will review the abstracts and then contact selected students who will be invited to present their speech before the committee. Students will be notified by mid-May of the Committee’s decision.
