Student Opportunities

Chemistry Clubs and Organizations

  • American Chemical Society 
    The American Chemical Society is the student affiliate of the national society. The organization is responsible for arranging both guest and student lectures on campus, providing weekly peer tutoring, and organizing visits to local chemical industries in the surrounding region. Strong involvement with the local Lehigh Valley ACS section is encouraged to aid undergraduates in networking and other professional skills.
  • Environmental Coalition (ECO)
    The Environmental Coalition recognizes that "sustainability" is multifaceted-- it means living in a way that protects and enriches the environment and your community and also contributes to a stable economy. ECO seeks to make students aware of the most pressing sustainability issues and through programming empower them to make the change.
  • Pre-Health Professions Club 
    The Pre-Health Professions Club informs those students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions with the following information: timeline for their applications, choosing a health professions school or graduate program, financial assistance, careers in the health professions and other related topics. Furthermore, students in the club actively participate in community service events both on the campus and in the community.

The Moravian Chemistry Department also sponsors an American Chemical Society student affiliate chapter that is active in sponsoring guest lectures, receptions and field trips to local industrial and government laboratories.
