2014 K-College Chem Club DowBQ

On May 29th, 2014, the Kalamazoo College Chemistry Club held their annual DowBQ, where students and faculty socialize while eating some great food and playing yard games. The DowBQ gets its name from the fact that both Chemistry and Biology majors are housed in the Dow Science Building. All chemistry and biology students, as well as faculty, were invited to the barbecue; it is a great time for underclassmen to ask seniors and faculty for advice on internships, completing the Senior Individualized Project (SIP), and applying to medical school or graduate school. Over 70 students attended the event and took the time to celebrate being part of the scientific community at Kalamazoo College.
