We’re Here for You

We Want to Help You Stand Out

An Open Door Policy

At SUNY Plattsburgh, the faculty want you to succeed. As a result, we maintain an “open-door” policy. If you have a question, feel free to walk in and ask.

Chemistry Help Sessions

Need some help? Have some questions? In addition to faculty office meetings, the chemistry faculty sponsors open “help sessions” every Monday and Thursday nights. Stop in and get the help you need. The faculty take turns hosting the “help sessions” to make sure you can get the help you need to succeed.

Student Research

In the modern world, the emphasis is not just on learning, but also on doing. At SUNY Plattsburgh, students are required to take part in undergraduate research projects which allow them to apply what they learn. The faculty are always available to help you with your research.
