Carnegie Mellon students should plan on enhancing their college experience through engagement in activities both inside and outside of the classroom. There are over 300 sanctioned student organizations that are funded by Student Senate and your activities fee. In addition there are opportunities for chemistry majors to get involved through the department.
- A major extracurricular activity of chemistry majors is undergraduate research.
- Many faculty are engaged in educational outreach initiatives that benefit from undergraduate engagement.
- Most department, schools and colleges have Student Activities Committees that facilitate a wide variety of activities for students from those units. ChemSAC serves this role for students majoring in chemistry.
- The Dean of the Mellon College of Science supports an organization for undergraduate women in the college called Women in Science. All undergraduate women in MCS are invited to dinner meetings held periodically throughout the academic year. Professor Karen Stump, firstname.lastname@example.org, is a co-advisor for the organization.
