Welcome to the University of Texas's student chapter of the American Chemical Society. We are the only student organization that focuses solely on the big world of chemistry. ACS is the largest professional group of chemists in the world, and our club acts a liason for students and the national organization.
Our meetings are held every other week and we always have free pizza! Most meetings feature a keynote speaker from chemical academia or industry. We have a strong concentration in research and focus on connecting students to labs and helping them into graduate school. This semester we are sending our best members on a free trip to the ACS national conference in Denver, CO.
In addition to professional development, we have frequent socials for the club members to enjoy. We also have school-wide and community volunteering. This semester we are sponsoring TEDMEDLive at UT on September 12th. We also will be selling lab notebooks for chemistry and biochemistry courses from 8/26-9/10 in Welch Hall from 10-3 PM. Later on in the semester we'll be volunteering at Longhorn Halloween and the Thinkery.
We are always looking for new members, so if you have any interest in chemistry, come down and join us!
Our meetings are every other Wednesday from 5-6 PM in Welch 2.122, Welch Convocation Center. Committee meetings occur during the off-weeks from 5-6 PM in Welch convocation hall. We have free pizza at every meeting, and dues are $10. A full list of meeting and committee meeting dates will be posted soon.
