Southeastern welcomes students back for the start of classes this week while we continue to keep all faculty, staff and students who are not yet able to make it to campus in our thoughts as the region works to recover from devastating flooding.
We attempted to reach ALL our students in recent days, but we realize communication has been difficult, if not impossible for some. If you are just now able to see this message, please contact so we can have a better understanding of your status and work with you so you can attain your educational goals.

Chemistry and Physics Seminar

The Department of Chemistry and Physics supports a series of seminars meeting the needs of students and faculty, both at Southeastern and other Universities. Faculty members and students from Chemistry and Physics as well as other departments, make use of the series to keep other faculty and students apprised of their activities.

Speakers from other Universities and businesses have used the seminar series as a forum in which to inform Southeastern students of post-graduate opportunities, whether in graduate school or in industry. Further, these seminars have served as a catalyst for collaborative research projects between Southeastern faculty and faculty at other Universities. By acting as a catalyst for 'speaker exchanges', our seminar series has promoted interactions as Southeastern faculty present their work to the faculty of other Universities.

While it focuses upon opportunities in physics and chemistry, speakers have also presented the following discussions: the work of chemists in the wake of 9/11, forensic medicine, the Creationism/evolution debate and the philosophical concept of emergent properties.

The department's seminars are held in Pursley Hall Room 211 from 12:00PM to 1:00PM on Fridays unless otherwise indicated. They are open to all who are interested.
