Help!!! I'm a professor...now what???

Submitted by Emily Sylvester, Wheeling Jesuit University

Has the end-of-summer, classes-start-in-less-than-a-month panic set in yet? I’ve started to feel it*, and I imagine we all have to a degree. Some of us VIPEr folks remember how especially anxious we were approaching our first year teaching general chemistry, having to start from scratch with lecture notes and course materials.

Back by popular demand

Submitted by Chip Nataro, Lafayette College

At the recent Organometallic Chemistry Gordon Research Conference there was a noticible fashion statement being made on Wednesday night. Four people were wearing identical shirts. And just to show how cool the shirts are, a fifth person wore their shirt on Thursday night during a special session. I would give more details, but what happens at a Gordo stays at a Gordo. What was this shirt you might ask?

Stand back, I'm going to Science!

Submitted by Sheila Smith, University of Michigan- Dearborn

Not to be outdone by my colleagues at the Organometallic GRC, I was reminded of our fun Science T-shirt day at the Dearborn Summer workshop!  Here are some of the entries.  Which ones are your favorites?  Got any more to add?  Post your pictures in the replies on the IONiC VIPEr Facebook page.
