Chemistry and Biochemistry Learning Community

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Residential Learning Community is open to students majoring in Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Residential Learning Communities (RLC) allow you to live with other students sharing the same academic major or special interest. As an RLC member, you have the opportunity to attend social and academic programs with other students, interact with faculty outside of the classroom, and get to know an upper division Community Mentor who shares your major or interest area.

Residential Learning Communities (RLC) are located in one of 10 Freshmen Connection Halls and participants are eligible for priority room selection. Additional information regarding room and roommate selection will be sent to student NAU email accounts if you are accepted into the RLC.

Join this group if you want to:

  • meet other students in chemistry, biochemistry, and healthcare programs
  • find people to study with

Priority enrollment

Seats in certain high-demand, major-based classes will be reserved for Chemistry and Biochemistry Learning Community residents. Your advisor will help you enroll in these courses. Visit Priority Enrollment to find out more about enrollment and advising.

Seats will be reserved in:

Fall semester:

  • CHM 151 - General Chemistry I: fundamental chemistry principles are presented at a level appropriate for pre-professional, science, and engineering majors. Students in the chemistry and biochemistry learning community will be enrolled in the same section of this course.
  • CHM 151L - General Chemistry I Lab: This co-requisite course (with CHM 151) introduces students to important lab practices and the analysis of chemical unknowns.

Spring Semester:

  • CHM 152 - General Chemistry II: This course is a continuation of CHM 151, in which fundamental chemistry principles are further investigated and presented. Students in the chemistry and biochemistry learning community can choose to be enrolled in the same section of this course.
  • CHM 152L - General Chemistry II Lab: this co-requisite course (with CHM 152) introduces students to further information such as analytical chemistry, thermochemistry, pH and buffers, chemical kinetics, and spectrophotometry.
