The Chemistry Department sponsors two student groups and one alumni group:
The Villanova Chemistry Society is open to any and all Chemistry majors, or majors from related disciplines. The Society meets periodically to plan social events for all Chemistry majors, service projects, and other events of interest. VCS is an organization comprised of Villanova students who are interested in Chemistry. VCS provides opportunities to see how the chemistry that is learned in a classroom translates into practical application. Our purpose is as much recreational as educational, so students of all majors are welcome to join!
Gamma Sigma Epsilon is the Chemistry Honor Society. Students are eligible for induction into Gamma Sig in the second semester of their Sophomore year. Students who are completing a major or minor in Chemistry or Biochemistry are eligible for membership. Students are chosen on the basis of academic achievement, citizenship, and dedication to the profession.
Villanova University was founded in 1842 by the Order of St. Augustine. To this day, Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition is the cornerstone of an academic community in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately and succeed while serving others. There are more than 10,000 undergraduate, graduate and law students in the University’s six colleges.
