Student Groups

Make the most of your time at NC State by getting involved in one of these chemistry-focused student groups, or find another NC State organization.

Alpha Chi Sigma (AXS)

Alpha Chi Sigma is a national co-ed professional chemistry fraternity founded in 1902.  Membership with the local chapter benefits students not only by helping with their studies but also by providing projects and activities that teach the roles of leadership and management. We provide an opportunity to create lifelong friendships with others interested in chemistry.

American Chemical Society

The American Chemical Society has provided more than a century of service to the science and profession of chemistry, taking a special interest in the development of chemical sciences, in the role of the chemistry professional, in chemical education, in public affairs and the formulation of government policy.

The Student Affiliate Chapter at NC State is a means by which students can become involved in this national organization. Activities include tours of nearby research facilities at the Research Triangle Park, trips to national and regional conferences, a student/faculty mixer, and presentations by guest speakers covering a variety of possible fields of study and careers in chemistry or chemistry-related occupations. Other group activities include picnics, outings and community service projects.

Membership is voluntary and offered to all undergraduates in chemistry or chemistry-related disciplines. Meetings are on the third Monday of each month during the academic year at 5:00 p.m. in Dabney 210.

For information on joining, please contact Dr. Phil Brown, or just come to a meeting. Look for the flyers and other ACS information on the bulletin board opposite the elevator on the first floor of Dabney.
