American Chemical Society/Society of Physics Students Club

Our mission is to provide information and events to the community that foster and encourage a fun scientific environment and to inform and help those seeking a career in the scientific fields. We're a club/group where students and faculty meet and share their love for the sciences.

ACS/SPS is a club for those interested in chemistry and physics. This club is open to all Benedictine students. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join. We have pizza, do good activities, and this club is a great resume builder for any post-undergrad plans! Get ready for some awesome events this year!

In addition, ACS/SPS club may be able to provide helpful information about grad/PhD schools for Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering and can share info about research-based internship programs that enhance your experience as a scientist.
