RIP, cool chemistry cat
Alumni, faculty, staff and students may remember spotting an adorable cat running around Witherspoon and Morse. That ginger feline was Dichromate, the cool chemistry cat. Dichromate came to the College 11 years ago from a student whose family was moving and couldn’t take Dichromate with them. Many students and faculty loved Dichromate. “He was so important to the students because he was a comfort to many of them during times of stress, finals and homesickness,” Stephen Cartier of the Chemistry department says. “He was a constant in their lives and gave them a little bit of the comfort of home.” Near the end of his life, Dichromate became sick with lymphoma and passed away peacefully. Dichromate will be greatly missed on campus and will live on in all our memories.
