    As part of the departmental website redesign project, FAS have hired a photographer to take professional, engaging photos of participating units’ spaces and people – the sort of photos you’d expect to see in materials for prospective students.

    The photographer will be at our site for one day only between September 28 and October 16, 2015.

    We are reaching out to our Chemistry community for suggestions on environmental photo shots and scenes. Please, provide your comments using any of the contact methods listed on
