The members of the Alpha Chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma

Why join Alpha Chi Sigma?

Through the efforts of its members, there has developed an organization – professional in stature and of national consequence – fully recognized and respected by members of the chemical profession. Membership is not a guarantee of success in chosen fields; nor is it true that all successful scientists belong to Alpha Chi Sigma. It is true, however, that being a member of Alpha Chi Sigma identifies one as a person of worthy ideals and capabilities.

Aside from the professional advantages offered by Alpha Chi Sigma, one will find that membership provides a catalyst for forming worthwhile, lifelong friendships. It has been said that there is nothing as fine as the affection an individual feels toward a true friend. Cementing such friendships is the First Object of Alpha Chi Sigma. This does not cease with graduation but continues throughout the years in the professional branch of the Fraternity. The rewards of Alpha Chi Sigma are open to every pledge, collegiate, and alumni if you choose to embody the fraternal spirit.

It is also hoped that many years from now when your initiation into this order is but a memory, you will remember with great fondness your personal discovery of this, your professional chemistry fraternity.

Benefits of Rushing Alpha Chi Sigma

  • Alpha Chi Sigma is one of a kind! We are the only professional chemistry fraternity in the United States. More than 100 years old with over 70,000 members, we bring together men and women pursuing a wide variety of chemistry-related careers.
  • Collegiate members benefit from a local group to not only help with their studies but also create projects and activities that teach the roles of leadership and management. We also provide an opportunity to create lifelong friendships with others interested in chemistry and other STEM fields.
  • As a member, further opportunities for meeting other members can help with your employment, hiring, and professional relationships. Our professional members appreciate meeting others involved in chemistry outside of their workplaces, and often, outside of their field of work.
