There are two student organizations within the Department and several others pertaining to our majors but organized on a college or university level.
American Chemical Society (ACS) Collegiate Chapter
Chemistry doesnt only exist in a lab or a classroom. It is all around us and is relevant in the scope of many disciplines. ACS is here to connect our Chem and Biochem majors, and anyone who has an interest in the chemical sciences, together to support each other. We usually meet on Tuesdays at 11:10 a.m. and frequently do Elementary School Science Nights/Demos as outreach events within the SLO community. Our advisors are Dr. David Zigler and Dr. Shanju Zhang. If you have any questions please email us at,
