Many students enjoy extracurricular activities while at John Carroll. Several faculty members in the Chemistry Department are advisors for student-led organizations.
All of our faculty members recommend that our students at least become familiar with the professional organization American Chemical Society (ACS). JCU has a student chapter on campus called ACS Student Affiliates. There are additional chemistry-related professional organizations in which you may be interested:
