Annual Repast

 

The chemistry department gets together every year for a formal dinner at the end of the academic year to celebrate the accomplishment of our top students, introduce new faculty and staff, and to reflect on the year that passed. This year's repast was held on May 3, Saturday, at the Park Central Tavern in Hamden.
