Christmas Study Break 2011

For those of you who have enjoyed Dr. Kroll's pizza this should bring back good memories. For those of you who have not had the privilege we are very sorry for you. Tuesday evening was the annual study break at the Krolls during exam week. Students enjoyed not only pizza but sticky toffee pudding cake among other treats. I am sure it helps you excel on your finals!

It's beginning to look a lot like . . .

Chemistry!  The department got into the spirit of the season and decorated a "Chemis-Tree," complete with goggles, ornaments, and garlands of DNA strands.

Sing with me!  (To the tune of "Jingle Bells")
Hydrogen, hydrogen,
you have one proton
you are the most abundant element
in the entire world!
Oh, Hydrogen, hydrogen
you make life possible
but if a humans breath too much of you
then they will surely die.

Maybe not the most jolly song, but it is both knowledgeable and precautionary.

Merry Christmas from the Chemistry department!
