  • A CHEMISTRY ALUMNI COUNCIL EVENT:A Discussion: Helping the Public Understand and Accept Science-Based Facts was held on Saturday Oct 19.  About 60 alumni, students, faculty and guests held a lively discussion.  A panel consisting of Hal Harris: UMSL Emeritus Professor of  Chemistry & Biochemistry, Aimee Hood: Regulatory and Scientific Engagement Lead at Bayer Crop Science, Kristine Callis-Duehl: Director of Education Research and Outreach at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, and Ruth Watt: Manager of STEM Events at the Saint Louis Science Center led the discussion which was moderated by Jeanette Hencken, BA 1985, retired teacher at Webster Groves High School. The event was the brainchild of Michael J.

  • THE ALUMNI RECEPTION on May 19, 2019 honoring the 50th anniversary of the third graduating class in 1969, and also the 2019 graduates was a great success.  The 2019 graduates and their families and friends attended a luncheon in the Whittaker Room in the Touhill Performing Arts Center, following the Commencement exercises.  The actual reception was held a little later in the Solarium of the Science Learning Center.  Here is a picture of some of the students and faculty at the luncheon, also one of Dr, Dupureur welcoming those present. 

    Five alumni from 1969 attended at least part of the weekends festivities and pictures are available.  Here is one of Les Tucker, Doug Nuelle and Mario Deprimo, another of Nuelle, Dr. Barton and Deprimo and his wife Susan and another of Doug Nuelle, Joe Bono and Mike Finkes, all at the Golden Reception on May 18.  Had he not been drafted, Finkes would have graduated in 1969 with his classmates. Here is a picture of three of the 1969 graduates, Tim Miller, Doug Nuelle and Joe Bono, with Harold Messler BS 1970 and Dr Barton at the reception of the Solarium. 

    The reception in the Solarium went very well too and here are some photographs. Cindy Dupereur, department chair, welcomed everyone and Lol Barton served as MC.  Michael Finkes, Doug Nuelle, Joe BonoTim Miller and Les Tucker all addressed those in attendance.  A very lively mixer consisting of alumni, new graduates and their families, faculty members, friends and family was enjoyed by all.
