Science clubs and organizations provide you with myriad opportunities for honing your leadership skills, learning more about your chosen field of study, and networking with students, alumnae, industry professionals, and faculty members.
Among the nearly 100 clubs and organizations on the Cedar Crest College campus, here are the ones that are specific to students with an interest in chemistry, biochemistry and forensic science.
The Chemistry Club provides great leadership, learning and networking opportunities for its members, who spend much of their efforts bringing the wonder of chemistry to young girls who might one day work in the field. The club organizes several outreach programs each year such as those with the Girl Scouts or Girl’s Club, which invite girls to campus to participate in hands-on science activities. This club is open to all Cedar Crest students.
The Forensic Science Student Organization (FSSO) provides great leadership, learning and networking opportunities for members.
As one of the strongest fundraising organizations on campus, the FSSO sends students to regional and national conferences, workshops, and other science-related events. Open to all Cedar Crest students.
Students with a minimum of 18 credits completed in chemistry and who meet a minimum GPA of 3.2 in Chemistry courses are invited to be initiated into Gamma Rho Xi, the Cedar Crest College chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon--the national chemistry honor society.
Forensic science students who meet the academic criteria can join Delta Delta Epsilon, the newly formed international forensic science honor society.
