AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
Waynesburg University’s American Chemical Society (ACS) student chapter affords students of chemical science with many opportunities to succeed in their field. Through the chapter, students become better acquainted with their colleagues, secure the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, gain experience in preparing technical material before chemical audiences, and foster an awareness of the responsibilities and challenges of the modern chemist.
In coordination with Waynesburg University’s mission to promote faith, learning and serving, the Waynesburg SAACS provides a support system for its undergraduates and outreach to the surrounding community. Focusing on campus and community outreach, this group is comprised of a diverse range of students interested in promoting science. The most successful events executed by the Waynesburg ACS student chapter, like a recent program with a local Girl Scout troop, are designed to help non-scientists appreciate the value that chemistry adds to everyday life.
Most recently, the Chapter was selected to receive the “Commendable Chapter Award” from the American Chemical Society. In addition to being recognized in Chemical & Engineering News and in Chemistry magazines, the student chapter will be recognized at the 241st ACS National Meeting in Anaheim, Calif., in March 2011.
