The students, faculty and staff enjoy a few formal and informal (academic and fun) get togethers. We have annual 'get to know new members of the department' (faculty/ staff/ graduate students) in late August, harvest festival gathering (physics and chemistry department) around late october, spring student achievement award dinner in April, end of semester undergraduate and graduate TA appreciation day, colloquia throughout the fall and spring semesters as well as a chemistry-physics holiday party around the christmas holidays. The left side navigation bar has links to colloquia, photogallery from the events and deadlines (that are of importance for graduation...).
A semi formal setting in which departmental undergraduate & graduate students, faculty and staff gather and present academic topics that are of interest to them. The event is usually scheduled on alternate Fridays in Smart Energy Building SN 2005 (floor 2D) at noon. Presentations are usually preceded by pizza. Presentations start around noon. Question and answer session follows the presentation.
