New Student Info & Orientation

Welcome New Chemistry Grad Students Fall 2020!

On behalf of the Chemistry & Biochemistry faculty, I would like to welcome you to the Chemistry graduate program. You will spend the next five years learning about chemistry, conducting research and sharing your findings in many different settings. It will be a challenging, enriching and fulfilling experience and I hope you take advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities the program offers to shape your career in research and/or teaching. During your graduate time at UCSC I will be your personal contact for administrative processes and procedures required by the department and the Graduate Division.

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Karen Meece
Graduate Program Cooordinator
