Chemistry: In Our Element is a new Learning Community for 2021-2022! Designed to support chemistry majors and students interested in the field, this LC will provide opportunities to interact with faculty and gain insight into chemistry-related careers. Students will get the chance to see behind-the-scenes in labs on campus that will expose them to research opportunities and positions. Other programming includes a chemistry movie night (complete with liquid nitrogen ice cream!), tours of local chemistry companies in Lincoln, and a capstone symposium and dinner with graduate students, faculty, and industry professionals.
