Stephanie Quan writes in with an account of the chem department’s winter show, a Varsity Show-type extravaganza featuring off-key musical tributes to favorite professors sung by second-year grad students with department secretaries on keyboard.

But in the esteemed words of R. Kelly, “after the party show, it’s the after party.” Stephanie says the fun really started with five hours of chemically induced revelry in the lounge. The ethanol flowed from twelve standard kegs and a massive punch dispenser, photographed here next to Stephanie’s friend Terrence.

Just remember guys, “don’t drink and derive.”
