Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS)

Do you love chemistry? Learn why chemistry is called the central science, how you can get involved in undergraduate research, and get to know others who share your love of chemistry. The ACS student members are not only a cohesive group of chemistry majors, but we have members from all different majors across campus. Our group is active in outreach because we want to inspire others to see the value chemistry brings to their lives.

As a member of SMACS, you'll also have the opportunity to become a national member of the ACS, the largest organization in the world dedicated to a single discipline. National members receive a subscription of the weekly magazine, Chemical and Engineering News. Our chapter is ranked as an Outstanding Chapter which places us in the top level of student chapters both domestically and internationally. We achieve this awards status due to our number, diversity, and quality of outreach, professional development, and social activities. The many other benefits of membership (as well as a lot of great chemistry resources) can be found at the ACS website.

Are you interested in a professional career in health sciences? Do you aspire to become a physician, a dentist or dental hygienist, an optometrist or pharmacist, or one of many other medical professionals? If this is your goal, then you simply must be a member of the Chem-Med Club. This club puts you in touch with the professionals you need to know if you are interested in a professional career. Medical professionals visit the Chem-Med Club meetings and share the ins and outs of their profession and help you understand what it takes to be successful, and what it takes to get into a professional graduate program as well!
