FOCUS-Females of Chemistry Uniting Scientists

Hello students!
 
This year we have started a new student organization and seminar series, FOCUS – Females of Chemistry Uniting Scientists.
 
The purpose of this organization is to promote awareness and highlight scientific achievements of prominent females within the field of chemistry while motivating and encouraging other women, minorities, and members of the scientific community. Additionally, FOCUS will coordinate community outreach at local schools and social events. 
 
If you are interested in interacting with successful female chemists, other OSU students, or building your CV, please join us for the 1st general body meeting of FOCUS this Thursday, August 30, 2018 in CBEC 267 at 5:30 pm.
 
At our first meeting, we will be discussing open positions on the board, outreach events for Fall 2018, and begin planning our Spring 2019 seminar, featuring Dr. Rebecca Ruck (Merck Executive Director, Process Chemistry – a recent recipient of the ACS Award for Encouraging Women into the Chemical Sciences).
 
FOCUS is not limited to females, all that promote diversity within science are welcome!

Walk-In Advising Hours

Did you know that the CBC Advisors designate times each weekday for walk-in appointments? Walk-in appointments allow you to get quick questions answered. Regularly checking in with an advisor helps ensure you are on the right track to achieve your academic and personal goals and are getting the most out of your CBC degree.  Check in at the front desk of 110 Celeste Lab to see an advisor during the following times during the 2018-2019 Academic Year:

  • Mondays 9:00 – 11:00 AM
  • Tuesdays 2:00 – 4:00 PM
  • Wednesdays 9:00 – 11:00 AM
  • Thursdays 2:00 – 4:00 PM

*The walk-in hours schedule is subject to change, and additional walk-in hours may be added to accommodate Friday deadlines.  The Undergraduate Studies Office may be closed on national holidays, so walk-ins would be cancelled and no advising appointments would be available. 

If the hours above are not convenient for your quick questions, you are welcome to schedule an appointment. Note: Walk-in hours are not appropriate for complex questions, graduate applications, etc. To make an appointment or inquire about the walk-in hours of a specific advisor, call us at (614) 292-6009.
