2020 Prospective Chemistry Graduate Student Visitation Weekend


Applicants who are offered admission to the Chemistry PhD Program and who live in the United States will be invited to attend one of our visitation weekends. The dates of the 2020 visitation weekends are:

Friday, February 14th and Saturday, February 15th
(arrive before 3:00PM on Friday, depart on Sunday morning, February 16th)


Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th
(arrive before 3:00PM on Friday, depart on Sunday morning, March 8th)

Applicants who are eligible to attend our visitation weekends will receive registration information by e-mail along with their offer letter. Registration for the February weekend will close on Friday, January 24th, and registration for the March weekend will close on Friday, February 21st.

Lodging will be reserved and paid for by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Attendees who live within the state of Ohio will be reimbursed for mileage at the established federal rate following the visitation weekend. Attendees who live outside of Ohio are expected to travel via the method that incurs the least amount of expense and the program will work with these attendees to make this determination. All flights and rental car reservations must be made by the Chemistry PhD program admissions coordinator. 

A full agenda will be available before February 14th. The weekends will both commence with a poster session and dinner on Friday night at the Blackwell on OSU's campus. Activities on Saturday will include meetings with faculty members, facility tours, and lunch with graduate students. The weekends will both conclude with a dinner from 6PM-9PM on Saturday night.
