What is a Student Affiliate?

Membership in the EIU chapter is separate from membership in the national organization and we do not require national ACS-SA membership. However, many members opt to become SA members of the national ACS. Membership includes many benefits including a subscription to InChemistry (the ACS-SA national magazine), a six month subscription to C&E News, and access to information about careers and opportunities. To join the national ACS as an undergraduate Student Affiliate, go to the following links for additional information.http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en.html


What are some of the things we do?

We partake in volunteer opportunities as well as promoting the excitement of chemistry. We do informational fieldtrips that allow our members to explore job options, networking, and more. We also do fun activities such as holiday parties, picnics, and games.


Note: Website Still Under Construction

Our website is still under construction and we are hoping to have if fully up and running by the end of the year. If you would like more information contact our president, Savannah Kapper, at sckapper@eiu.edu. Thank you.
