Our students are first introduced to data collection using instrumentation in their first semester of general chemistry. Vernier probes and products help our students learn to using technology appropriately in the laboratory from the very begginning. Our department has the following Vernier probes:

  • dissolved oxygen
  • Ion selective electrodes (chlorine, calcium, nitrate, ammonium, and potassium)
  • Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) Sensor
  • Conductivity
  • SpectroVis Plus Spectrophotometer
  • Mini GC Plus
  • UV-VIS Spectrophotometer

Department Map

Sometimes it is hard to find the lecture or lab that you are looking for, and even harder to find your professor's office. Please use the below map to help orient yourself to the rooms located in the chemistry department.

The chemistry office is located in A308. If all else fails, find this room and ask Mrs. Donna for help!

Our department is located on the third floor of Sundquist Science Center (SSC). To find SSC, please view the campus map located here. There are staircases located at the ends of each wing, a central staircase leading up from the lounge area, and two elevators. Once on the third floor, the main lecture halls (room numbers start with E) are found in the atrium area (hint: glass roof). The labs are located in the wings. The B-wing is physics, C-wing is biochemistry and physical chemistry, A-wing is general chemistry, and D-wing is organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry. On the third floor, we have a library for studying. It has one computer and a printer. Additionally, the third floor has a computer lab in the C-wing that is open for all students when not in use by classes.
