Alpha Chi Sigma Spring Rush

Rush Alpha Chi Sigma!

The Epsilon Chapter of the professional, progressive, coed, and chemistry based fraternity Alpha Chi Sigma is holding their Spring rush from January 22nd to January 30th on weekdays. We’re a group of students from all backgrounds who come together because of our mutual love of chemistry. But science isn’t the only thing that binds us together. Our brothers work and study in many fields, including non-STEM areas, and have all kinds of different interests, but we function as a close, supportive, and fun family. We even have several alumni that are Nobel prize winners! Being a brother in Alpha Chi Sigma means always finding someone to sit with in class, going on adventures around Bloomington and far away, dedicating time to community outreach, and making a huge campus seem a little bit smaller.

You only need to attend two rush events and an info session to be able to attend the interviews, being held on Friday, January 31rst.  

For more details about the date and time of rush events, please email epsilonaxe@gmail.com!

Summer Research at the University of Kansas

The University of Kansas Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry has had an active summer undergraduate research program for more than 44 years.  This 10-week program has been a valuable experience for undergraduate students who are considering a research career in chemical, biological or pharmaceutical sciences.  Many graduates of the program have gone on to pursue graduate degrees and now have a fulfilling research career. 

Students should preferably be juniors, although we will consider applications from outstanding sophomores if they will have completed organic chemistry prior to the start of the summer research program.  Competitive stipends will be offered plus room and board. 

See http://www.pharmchem.ku.edu for more information.
