2 Orbitals: What’s Happening in Chemistry Circles
March 3, 2008
ATTENTION MAY GRADUATES: WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS? Please let us know what your post-graduation plans are by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a permanent email address where we can contact you after graduation, please include that information. We’d like to include updates in a future issue of Orbitals.
ATTENTION ALL CHEMISTRY MAJORS: WHAT ARE YOU UP TO? It’s a good idea to keep our office informed of your curricular and extracurricular activities and interests because certain award and fellowship nominations require that we know more than just your GPA. One way to make sure that we are informed is to drop off a current resume at the Undergraduate Advising Office for your file. Let us know if you’ve lined up a great summer internship or job, too!
