Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS)

The American Chemical Society (ACS) Student Members program is a national organization for undergraduate students interested in chemical sciences, including fields such as biochemistry, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, environmental chemistry, forensic sciences, and the allied health professions. SMACS members who join the national chapter enjoy many benefits. Student Members receive 4 issues of Chemistry, an ACS publication that highlights careers, graduate schools and professional programs. In addition, you will be able to contact the ACS Department of Career Services to ask for assistance in preparing your resume or for other career advice.

Hofstra University's chapter of SMACS sponsors a number of activities every semester that are intended to help students interested in chemical science fields prepare for their future careers. Every month during the academic year, SMACS hosts a speaker either from the industry, a government laboratory or graduate school, who presents their research as well as information about science-related careers, graduate programs and research opportunities. We also organize outreach projects including hands-on demonstrations for children from local school districts.
