American Chemical Society (ACS)

The Student Affiliates Chapter of the American Chemical Society  affords opportunities for students of the chemical sciences to become better acquainted with one another, to secure the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, to obtain experiences in preparing and presenting technical material before chemical audiences, to foster a professional spirit among the members, to instill a professional pride in the chemical sciences, and to foster an awareness of the responsibilities and challenges of the modern chemist.

Student affiliates of the American Chemical Society are eligible for full membership in the society which is the largest professional organization in the world.  Activities of the local chapter include presentations by professional chemists such as the "The Chemistry of Wine" and "A Day in the Life of a Forensic Drug Chemist". Members also judge and present awards at local and regional science fairs, and perform chemical demonstrations on campus and at local schools.
