ChemClub was organized as an open network for those interested in chemistry to meet and share ideas and experiences. Our goals are to support and publicize the scholastic achievements of the faculty and students and alumni from the RIT School of Chemistry and Materials Science. Our club also aims to form both social and professional connections among students and alumni of the department.

An RIT education extends beyond the classroom into the residence and dining halls, on the sports fields, and into student organizations.

ChemClub, AXE, and ASBMB are each unique and not mutually exclusive. Each group offers its own unique focus. It is not uncommon to have students participate in more than one of these organizations.  If it’s volunteering in a local city school or working at the Rochester Museum and Science Center during Chemistry Week, writing the department newsletter, or helping a girl scout troop earn a science badge, our RIT Chemmunity has something for you.


The Materials Research Society will build a dynamic, interactive, global community of materials researchers to advance technical excellence by providing a framework in which the materials disciplines can convene, collaborate, integrate and advocate.

Founded in 1973, MRS now consists of over 16,000 members from the United States -- as well as nearly 70 other countries. The Society is different from that of single discipline professional societies because it encourages communication and technical information exchange across the various fields of science affecting materials.
