About Us


The objective of the Barnard Chemical Society (BCS) is to promote fellowship among its members, to encourage the social and academic advancement of students of chemistry and
the student body at large, and to foster an atmosphere of achievement and professionalism.

We are officially a student affiliate chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Recently, BCS received an ACS Honorable Mention Chapter Award based on our activities in the 2011-2012 academic year. We owe much thanks to our wonderful advisor, Professor Marisa Buzzeo.

You may find information and updates regarding BCS events here.  We will also post chemistry-related news periodically, for your personal interest and enjoyment.

Are you interested in joining? We’re always delighted to have new members! You can follow our Facebook group here and drop by our weekly meetings.
