ACS Student Member Communities

THANK YOU, undergrads for helping make the 253rd ACS National Meeting a HUGE success! While at the meeting you attended more than 25 events specific to the undergrad audience, presented 1400+ posters, sat in on technical symposia (including Eminent Scientist lecturer Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi), and received congratulations on a job well-done from ACS President, Dr. Allison Campbell at the Student Chapter Awards Ceremony.

If you’re a student member who was unable to attend the meeting, check out what Alex Goranov and Lana Nitti had to say about their experience in San Francisco! Hopefully, we’ll see in at the 254th ACS National Meeting in Washington, DC this fall.
