Great students graduate every year from the Hastings College Chemistry Department. Our small class sizes with professors who love to teach and opportunity to be in the lab trying new things every semester really sets us apart. Check out some of our recent grads below!
The Department is fortunate to have an endowment that helps us fund student research projects, as all majors in the department conduct a significant senior research project. The Dr. Robert and Rogene Johnston Endowed Chemistry Fund was established in memory of the late Dr. Johnston, a 1943 graduate and Chemistry major at Hastings College.
Gifts can be given online by selecting “Other” under the "Designated to" box and entering “Dr. Robert and Rogene Johnston Endowed Chemistry Fund."
We also have naming opportunities availablefor labs and offices. For more, contact Mike Karloff at the Hastings College Foundation at 402.461.3979 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
