The ACS provides guidance for careers and professional opportunities for students to network and showcase their research. For more information: http://acs.org/undergrad
The VSU, ACS student affiliate is very active, participating annually in national chemistry week at the Science Museum of Virginia, the Fool for the Arts Festival in Chesterfield County, Christmas Angel Tree and the Girls in Science event sponsored by DuPont. Most recently the students were awarded the Undergraduate Student Affiliate Grant to sponsor the Undergraduate program at the Southeastern Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society.
A student led organization for students with its members involved in community service activities such as on campus tutoring, peer mentoring by senior students; participants and facilitators at the annual Chemistry Day; and presenters at the VSU Kids’ Tech University Symposium.
