We have the best reactions!

Get to Know Us

Alma College’s chemistry club is an on-campus club that meets weekly in the lobby of Dow Science Center on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. Our chemistry club and XEM honorary work together and meet together, which fosters a sense of unity between the casual chemist or first-year student and our upper-level chemistry community. Together we run chemistry shows for local elementary schools, home or away. We have two biannual major chemistry shows, which we call our “Science Blowouts!” With the help of the biology, physics and chemistry clubs and our Alma College natural sciences staff, we create an atmosphere that’s fun for everyone!

How to Join

Requirements for a Chemistry Club member: 

Having an interest in chemistry, even if it isn’t your major or minor. Adequate attendance and participation are the main concern of the club. To join, simply attend meetings in Dow Lobby at 10 p.m. Tuesdays. For more information, send us an email!

Requirements for an XEM member: 

A chemistry major or minor is favored. Members must have a 3.5 cumulative GPA in chemistry.  Attendance (or excused absences only) is required and participation in the Science Blowout events is also required. Prior experience as a club member is strongly recommended. To join, pick up an application from the chemistry club display in Dow Lobby, fill it out, and turn it in. Meanwhile, attend meetings in Dow Lobby at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.
