Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society
ACS Student Affiliates provides students of chemistry, chemical engineering, and related disciplines the opportunity to become better acquainted, to secure the intellectual stimulation that arises from professional association, to obtain experience in preparing and presenting technical material before chemical audiences, to foster a professional spirit among the members, to instill a professional pride in chemistry and chemical engineering, and to foster an awareness of the responsibilities and challenges of the modern chemist through professional and social activities.
The Pre-Medical Society of Missouri State University strives to expose students to different aspects of medical fields and give students opportunities to enhance their leadership skills by becoming involved and interacting with other premedical students. The Society has a medical school tour and a preceptorship program each year, through which students can gain more experience in the medical field. If you are interested in finding out more about the Pre-Medical Society, contact Dr. Tom Tomasi (faculty advisor) at 836-5126.
Stream Team (Natural and Applied Science)
The Stream Team is a state-wide organization which monitors the quality of Missouri's water ways. The Natural and Applied Sciences Stream Team at Missouri State University visits the James River every other month to monitor water quality. The Stream Team acts as an early warning system for water pollution. The Stream Team also takes a float trip down the James River every semester to enjoy the beauty of the river and the surrounding cliffs and forests. Various fundraising activities help defray the cost of the float trip. One of the smaller organizations on campus, the Stream Team always welcomes new members. Students can be as involved in the group as they want. The Stream Team program at Missouri State University offers an opportunity for all students to get involved in river conservation. Anyone considering a career in any scientific field could gain valuable, hands-on experience through this organization. If you are interested in finding out more about the Stream Team, contact Tina Tamme, 836-5304 (faculty advisor).
