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.
