Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society
The KSU Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society (SAACS) Chapter has recently been reactivated. This is a group for students interested in all disciplines related to and including chemistry. Planned activities are geared towards social and professional networking and development as well as community outreach for both chemistry promotion and service to help better our local community.
Recent events include hosting seminar speakers and a poster session;arranging local professional development seminars; professional networking; acting as Peer Advisors to incoming chemistry students; and various community service/outreach plans. Other proposed ideas include field trips to local, regional, and national meetings of the American Chemical Society, as well as local industry; teaming with other local student chapters; and fundraising.
