Dept. of Chemistry and Physics at ASU

Dept. of Chemistry and Physics at ASU The Department of Chemistry and Physics at Augusta State University is a vibrant and growing department offering BS degrees in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, and the associated secondary education tracks.

I am especially excited about our new I-MAT program for chemistry and physics education as a streamlined program for a Bachelors degree, Masters degree, and teaching certification. We also support pre-engineering and other pre-professional programs such as pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-pharmacy. Chemistry and physics are central sciences that provide an excellent background for careers in many allied fields. As a student here, your classes will be small, with less than 50 in your introductory courses and 10-20 in your advanced courses. Our strong curriculum includes hands-on work with modern scientific instruments and state-of-the-art computer systems. Opportunities to work with faculty mentors on undergraduate research projects provide individualized instruction in areas of special interest to each student. A variety of scholarship programs assist our majors. Our graduates are successful in entering graduate degree programs or securing rewarding jobs. What I find most satisfying about being a part of this department is the sense of community—a close-knit group of students, a caring faculty, and active chemistry and physics/pre-engineering clubs. The learning center is filled with students not just during the free tutoring sessions, but most hours of the day either studying or just hanging out. The whole department is alive with activity and is a great thing to be a part of. Stop by the 3rd floor of Science Hall and take a tour, talk to an advisor, and explore the opportunities. See how to become a part of it. Dr. Tom Crute Chair, Dept of Chemistry and Physics


PCHEM Karoake is Saturday night at the Mi Rancho's on Washington road (near I-20). Come on out and have a great time supporting the singing pchemers.

QEP: Experiential Learning

The QEP, quality enhancement plan, is open for proposals. Maybe you have an idea in the area of Experiential Learning that could become the QEP. Check out the video (it's very short) if you have any interest:

This is "QEP: Experiential Learning" by Georgia Regents University on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.


This Friday, there is a LUNA event...Look Up at Night, Augusta. Dr. Kristen Thompson will give a talk entitled, "OUr Solar System's Shining Star: The Sun". Starts at 7pm in Rm W1002 of Science Hall.

Venus Transit 2012 National Solar Observatory

Due to the inclement weather, all of this evenings astronomy events will be cancelled.

If you are interested, there are a number of sites across the globe webcasting the transit so you don’t have to wait until 2117 to see it!! Try any of the links below and hopefully they will have better viewing weather than we are having here in Augusta this evening.

The National Solar Observatory is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation, for the benefit of the astronomical community.

We won't be able to see Sunday evening's annular solar eclipse here in Georgia, but you can watch it live from Japan instead! It's the next best thing to seeing it for yourself!!

Panasonic will broadcast live the annular solar eclipse from the top of Mt.Fuji only with solar energy.│Panasonicは太陽光エネルギーを使って富士山頂から金環日食を生中継します。


Summer classes begin tomorrow! What are YOU doing this summer?


Congrats to the graduating class of 2012!


Astronomy Night has been cancelled this evening due to the thunderstorms coming into the area. We will reschedule for a special COMBINED event on Tuesday, June 5th to witness the Transit of Venus across the Sun’s surface before sunset, continuing on to view the night sky after dust.

Northern lights seen farther south than usual -

People in Atlanta were able to see the Northern Lights, aka the aurora borealis last night. It is very rare to be able to see it this far south.

So, go outside tonight and look north and *hopefully* you can see them too!

The northern lights came to the Deep South on Monday night, making them visible hundreds of miles farther south than they normally would be.
