The Student Chapter of the American
Chemical Society (ACS) is open to all undergraduates and graduate students with an interest in chemistry. The ACS is an association of professional
and academic chemists and chemical engineers composed of local chapters.
Advantages of Student Chapter membership include the establishment of a support
structure of friends and faculty within the chemistry department and
The University of Alabma. Opportunities for exposure to professional
aspects of chemistry and for involvement in the community are also
enhanced. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors can gain leadership experience
by becoming SAACS officers.
Any undergraduate with an interest in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering
is welcome to participate with SAACS. Chemistry majors and minors
are strongly encouraged to join. Membership to the national ACS organization is encouraged but not required.
