Student Affiliates with their Tailgate Award at Homecoming 2009
Nearly 900 ACS Student Affiliate chapters are established in two- or four-year colleges and universities. These chapters serve as leadership organizations for undergraduate chemical sciences students, providing professional experiences, graduate school information, and other career development resources.
The F&M Student Affiliate Chapter typically has 25-30 chemistry students as members. These students have participated in a wide variety of activities including serving the community through an Elementary School Outreach program which treats children to demonstrations of the wonders of chemistry. The Affiliates have hosted many of our invited lecturers, and each year they donate a $50.00 savings bond award to the local Science Fair. The Chapter has fund-raisers throughout the year and sponsors an annual picnic and dinner.
The faculty advisor to the club is Dr. Plass of the Chemistry Department.
