Intercollegiate Student Chemists' Conference
Villanova University, PA, 5 April 2003

Due to the conflict of Spring Break with the 67th annual Intercollegiate Student Chemists' Conference (ISCC), participation by University of Delaware students was less than usual with three students presenting talks. The conference was held at Villanova University. Next year's ISCC will be a Hood College on April 17, 2004.
