You Know You’re a Nerd When…

by Courtney April 20, 2012

Last night in orgo lab while vacuum filtering our recrystallized products, I asked Carly if she wanted to play a game.  It had been featured on “The Big Bang Theory.”  Essentially, one person says the name of an element; for example, let’s say “magnesium.”  Then, the next person has to say an element that begins [...]

Winding Down and Wrapping Up

by Courtney December 2, 2011

Therefore, I believe it is my duty to inform all of my readers about all of the fun activities that the BSO has planned. This Saturday, September 24, the BSO is inviting everyone to come [...]

Butterflies and Gorillas

by Courtney April 11, 2011

On Friday, the Biological Sciences Organization (BSO) took a field trip to the Bufferfly House in Faust Park. After taking a few group photos outside the atrium and looking at multiple glass tanks full of all sorts of different insects, we all trekked through the free-flight atrium. The butterflies were absolutely beautiful, and the floral, [...]
