The American Chemical Society Purdue Student Affiliates is just a local
chapter of a nationally recognized organization. We are composed of a group of
like-minded students who have interests in chemistry and other related fields
such as food science and pharmacy.
The purpose of this organization is to afford an opportunity for students in
the chemical sciences to become better acquainted with one another, to secure
the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, and to
obtain experience in preparing and presenting technical material before a
chemical audience. We wish to foster curiosity and scientific growth among our
members, as well as instill a sense of pride in the chemical sciences.
We are very active around campus and the surrounding Lafayette area. As a
club, we have attended a research park symposium where we have met many important
people in the scientific community, allowing us an oppurtunity to network and
meet new people within the industry. We have plans of involvement during
National Chemistry Week, Science Olympiad, and the annual Chemvention
Competition. We like to keep an open mind and are always open to new ideas and
ways of thinking.
As part of a larger national organization, we are recognized in the area by
many as a prestigious chemistry related organization, not to mention eligibility
for grants for various club related projects and events. We have many resources
for everyone in this organization to take advantage of, so don't hesitate and
