Northeastern Illinois University Chemistry Department - Student Activity

Northeastern Illinois University Chemistry Department - Student Activity Student highlights and news from the Chemistry Department at NEIU Founded in 1867, Northeastern Illinois University continues to meet the demand for quality, affordable education, serving 12,000 students at the 67-acre main campus on Chicago's north side and three additional campuses in the metropolitan area.

NEIU is the most diverse university in the Midwest (according to U.S. News and World Report) In 1985, Northeastern Illinois University was added to the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) Approved List of baccalaureate chemistry programs in colleges and universities. Being included on the Approved List means that the chemistry curriculum meets standards established by the ACS Committee on Professional Training. Students completing the ACS track will earn a certificate stating that they have met ACS standards for professional training. In addition to the ACS certified BS degree the department of Chemistry also offers a non-certified BS degree as well as an undergradute minor. At the graduate level the department offers a strong masters program.

Neutron Based Table of Elements invented by James T. Struck BA, BS, AA, MLIS shows that neutrons can be the basis of a chemical element table. My drawings also show the lanthanides and actinides can be integrated with the rest of the Chemical Element table. Neutrons are slightly larger than protons, so Neutrons are just as useful as protons in being the basis of a chemical element table. Both protons and neutrons can also be shown as well. Now a new alternative to Russian Dmitri Mendeleev's table is shown. James T. STruck PO BOX 61 Evanston IL 60204
Seeking students voices for doctoral research- have your voice be heard! I am conducting research into the ways in which high schools can better prepare students for college chemistry courses. If you: ---graduated high school within the past 5 years AND ---took chemistry in high school AND ---have taken an introductory chemistry course (preparatory or general chemistry) within the past 6 quarters, or 3 semesters [not including summer sessions] Then you are eligible to be a part of this research. If you would like to have your voice be heard, please follow this link to complete the questionnaire for this study: All participants will have the option to be contacted for a follow-up interview by leaving your email address in response. Other than this, you will not be asked for any personal information, to ensure the confidentiality of your responses.
