Intercollegiate Student Chemists' Conference
Hood College, Frederick, MD

Five University of Delaware students were among the 37 students from 12 colleges and universities who presented their research at the 68th annual Intercollegiate Student Chemists' Conference (ISCC) held at Hood College 24 April 2004. The University of Delaware freshmen who attended and observed this year's program took notes on a well-run program because they will be hosting the ISCC when they are seniors in 2007. Next years ISCC will be at Muhlenberg College.
