Student Organizations

  • Alpha Chi Sigma – Alpha Chi Sigma brings together people from all fields related to Chemistry. Collegiate members benefit from a local group to not only help with their studies, but also projects which teach the roles of leadership and management, invaluable in their careers. We also provide an opportunity to create lifelong friendships with others interested in chemistry.
  • American Chemical Society – Student Affiliates – The Student Affiliate Chapter at NCSU is a means by which students can become involved in the American Chemical Society. Activities include tours of nearby research facilities at the Research Triangle Park, trips to national and regional conferences, a student/faculty mixer to acquaint students with faculty, and presentations by guest speakers covering the entire spectrum of possible fields of study and careers in chemistry or chemistry-related occupations.
  • Chemistry Graduate Student Association – The purpose of the Chemistry Graduate Student Association is to provide Chemistry Graduate Students with a voice in the University Graduate Student Association and to function in conjunction with the North Carolina State University Chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon Honorary Chemistry Society, to promote seminars, graduate student orientation events, and social events for the Chemistry Department.
  • Materials Research Society – In the late 1960's, the Materials Research Society was formed in an effort to bring together people in the field of Materials Science. The Society's core principles are centered around interdisciplinary, focused symposia and fostering a greater interaction among researchers.
  • National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) – NOBCChE is committed to the discovery, transmittal, and application of knowledge in the fields of science and engineering. The mission of NOBCChE therefore is to build an eminent community of scientists and engineers by increasing the number of minorities in these fields. NOBCChE will achieve its mission through diverse programs designed to foster professional development and encourage students to pursue careers in science and technical fields.
  • Phi Lambda Upsilon – The Beta Lambda Chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon promotes chemistry through the sponsorship of both scholarly and social activities.
