Geoff Hutchison ’99 is answering chemistry questions for the local paper in Ithaca. He offers to answer ours as well. Do you have any questions for Geoff? Here are mine:
1) Is percholate really that dangerous?
2) Are you as embarassed as I am about the pathetic gut courses that the chemistry departments offers? I am especially dismissive of Chemistry for the Consumer in the Twenty-First Century.
By the way, my solution to the problem of gut science courses at Williams is actually simple. Departments should only be allowed to offer courses that earn credit for the major.
