Chemistry Society

ANU Chemistry Society has a pretty sweet job. The RSC academically supports students so well that we just have to focus on the fun.
Throughout the year ANU Chem Soc will host several events for our members that will enrich their student experience beyond the lab.
Together with ANU Biology Society we will bring you the infamous Lab Coat Party in the first semester. Because what could be cooler than clubbing in Civic with your Lab Demonstrator while wearing a Lab Coat covered in Sharpie ink? Our members will get discounted tickets.
We will host the annual Chemistry Ball in Term 4 at a swanky hotel, including a live band, DJ and crazy drinks package. Our members again get discounted tickets.

Scattered throughout the year, at least 1 a term, we will host social BBQs in the Chemistry courtyard for chilled lunching and classy day-time drinking. Members get food and soft drink for $2, non-members can sign up first for those rates. Ciders and beers are a gold coin donation. Our regular events also include public lectures each term that aim to present chemistry in an open and exciting way.
We aim to bring Chemistry students from all year levels together, in order to foster a sense of community and allow networking (AKA traditional passing down of lab reports and notes) in addition to a series of peer-guided study tutorials. Many non-members also attend our events to mingle with the cool Chem kids.

In addition, the 2016 Leadership Team for ANU Chem Soc is here to answer any questions you might have about the society or studying Chemistry at ANU.
