The Gift that Keeps on Giving Print E-mail


Earlier this month we had a visit from Brian Quan - one of our alumni.  Mr. Quan, along with other alumni and members of faculty, donated money for the start up of our newly renovated undergraduate labs in ABB back in 2001.  Previously, the undergraduate labs had been housed in Burke Science and were typical of circa 1945 chemistry labs - very few fume hoods and most chemistry done on the open bench.

To thank those who donated, a drawer was dedicated in one of the labs and afixed with a plaque with their name on it - Mr. Quan is seen standing in front of "his" drawer with a picture of himself at graduation.  Without donations to the undergraduate labs, we would not have many of the instruments and equipment being used today. 

Thank you again to Mr. Quan and the others who have donated to our labs!
