The ACS POLY/PMSE student chapter at USC is a professional organization that promotes the needs of aspiring polymer chemists and provides a social environment to network with other students with related interests. We organized industrial networking events, poster sessions, “Energy Conservation Week” and seminars to promote awareness of the responsibilities and challenges facing the modern chemistry graduate students.

Prof. Brian Benicewicz served as the faculty advisor for our student chapter. He enthusiastically guided us to organize events, invite other professors and networking with industry as well as securing funds. I was chosen as the the president of our student chapter in 2015. In 2014, I was elected as the secretary and I have been a member since 2012. Additional information can be found at our website https://garnetgate.sa.sc.edu/organization/acspoly
