Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society
The KSU Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society (SAACS) Chapter was reactivated in 2012. This is a group for students interested in all disciplines related to and including chemistry. Planned activities are geared towards social and professional networking and development as well as community outreach for both chemistry promotion and service to help better our local community.
Recent events include hosting seminar speakers and a poster session;arranging local professional development seminars; professional networking; acting as peer advisors to incoming chemistry students; and various community service/outreach plans. Other proposed ideas include field trips to local, regional, and national meetings of the American Chemical Society, as well as local industry; teaming with other local student chapters; and fundraising.
Our mission is to provide a place for Kent State University students interested in chemistry-related disciplines to inspire growth in themselves, the department of chemistry, the university community, and the local community. In collaboration with each other, the department, and the local section, we work to promote awareness of the perpetual impacts of chemistry in our world, as well as to develop professional skills, friendships and contribute to the learning environment around us.
Interested students are encouraged to fill in the form below with their contact information in order to receive updates, as well as the date of our next meeting.
