Office Hours

ChemREFS are excited to introduce a new program called Office Hours (previously ChemConvos)! Office Hours are effectively office hours during which one member of ChemREFS will be available to talk, one-on-one, closed-door, about anything that might be on your mind—whether personal (family, relationships, politics, etc...), work-related, or even just to take a break! Similar to all meetings with ChemREFS, things discussed at Office Hours will be kept confidential.

Office Hours are held weekly on Wednesdays from 12 - 1:30 PM during the fall and spring semesters. A weekly Doodle Poll is emailed to the department with 20 minute time slots available (time slots are buffered by 5 - 10 mins so that you don't need to worry about running into someone). Poll results are anonymous and can only be seen by the ChemREFS on duty, but feel free to reserve a time slot by leaving an 'X' for complete privacy. Drop-ins are also welcome, but we cannot guarantee an appointment if we are already meeting with someone.

The current schedule for Office Hours is posted online, and we will announce the ChemREFS on duty several days ahead of time as well. Students from any division are welcome to sign up. At the same time, we would like to emphasize that you may contact any of us at any time to schedule a meeting. Our contact details are available here, or you can email the group at
