OUR ACS STUDENT CHAPTER: The American Chemical Society at Southwestern University is a student affiliated chapter. Through our recently gained national certification, we plan to expand our chapter through civic engagement and promotion of chemistry around campus and Georgetown. For those interested in how they can participate in our chapter, come and see what we are about! We meet the first and third Tuesday of every month in the fourth floor lounge of the Fondren-Jones Science building.
