A neutron walks into a bar, sits down and asks for a drink. Finishing, the neutron asks "How much?" The bartender says, "For you, no charge."

Tufts ACS is a student-run organization dedicated to bringing Tufts students interested in chemistry together outside the classroom. You don't have to be a chemistry major to belong to the ACS. Since chemistry is fundamental to almost every science or engineering discipline, all science and engineering majors are invited to join. Additionally, freshmen and sophomores who have not yet chosen their majors are invited to join. Come to one of our meetings or email us to learn more!

We generally invite a speaker per semester and arrange events year-long that benefit chemistry majors or bring them together in a social setting. We recently invited Massachusetts State Crime Lab Director Carl Selavka, who spoke about the applications of chemistry in forensics and the requirements for a career in forensic chemistry. These talks are generally only peripherally technical and relate more to you and helping you to find your place in the discipline.

Our events are generally well-attended. We would like to think we are doing an adequate job of reaching out to Tufts students interested in chemistry. If you think we can do better, come to our meetings and join!
