What is ACS and Chemistry Club?

The American Chemical Society (ACS) was founded in 1876. The ACS is a self-governed individual membership organization that consists of more than 158,000 members at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry. The organization provides a broad range of opportunities for peer interaction and career development, regardless of professional or scientific interests.

The Student Affiliate Chapter of the ACS (aka Chemistry Club) at Southwestern was established in 2001. The club mission is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in life and in Chemistry. We offer tutoring, touring, scientific lectures, and other activities; to help students improve their problem solving abilities and other skills.

Our scientific lectures feature guest speakers from: the ACS monthly meetings, professors, former students, government officials, and industrial workers. We provide official ACS Study Guides (for an economical price) for General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry students for their ACS standardized testing.We provide entertainment via "Nerdy Movie Fridays" that inform students about world-wide epidemics such as Malaria, biographies on well-known or little known people such as Percy Julian.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month in room 332 from 11:00-11:50 a.m.
