Did you know:

We offer honors courses to the students who have a keen interest in the sciences and chemistry in particular. In order to enroll in this program they must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher or a professor’s recommendation. The honors courses are more intensive and most of the registered students usually conduct supervised research with the department’s professors.

We applied and were granted the request to host the ACS MARM meeting for 2008 which was very rare achievement for a community college.

We also hosted the 52nd Undergraduate Research Symposium (PDF) of the NY subsection of the American Chemical Society, on May 1, 2004.

In 2003 the Carnegie Foundation and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) bestowed Dr. Paris Svoronos, the most prestigious award of “the outstanding community college professor of the year for 2003.” This is the only award given to all community college professors of all various fields, ranks and colleges.

Are you interested in chemistry? Then come and talk with us.
