Chemistry and biochemistry learning community
The Chemistry and
Biochemistry learning community brings together approximately 30 students
interested in careers in the pure sciences or the health care professions. If
you’re majoring in chemistry/biochemistry, forensics, or health professions,
this community could be a great fit for you.
Seats in certain
high-demand, major-based classes will be reserved for chemistry and
biochemistry learning community freshmen.
Your adviser will help you enroll in these courses, which you will
attend with other members of your learning community. Visit priority enrollment to find out more about enrollment and
advising. Seats will be reserved in:
CHM 151 -
General Chemistry I
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
course (with CHM 151) introduces students to important lab practices and the
analysis of chemical unknowns.
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
course (with CHM 152) introduces students to further information such as
analytical chemistry, thermochemistry, pH and buffers, chemical kinetics, and
activities and events
learning community residents work with residence hall staff to plan exciting
and meaningful activities. Past events that were held in the chemistry and
biochemistry learning community include:
learning community residents and discuss future activities and events.
Enjoy a nice
