American Chemical Society Meeting
Every year the program sends a number of students to present their research at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society.
Presentation of results from undergraduate research projects at national and international level research meetings is strongly encouraged by the faculty in chemistry. On an average 3-4 students present their research at the national level research meetings every year. Some the travel cost to these meetings is sponsored by their faculty advisors through their research grants. The COSE dean's office generously supports travel by students via granting them up to $500 from the student professional development funds. The national American Chemical Society (ACS) meetings are the most commonly attended meeting by our students and faculty.
In the most recent ACS meeting (August 2008), Dr. Mark Mechelke took three of his research students (Kerrie Walters, Allisa Dillman, and Sarah Winkleman) to Boston to present the results of their undergraduate research.

In the 2007 ACS meeting (March 2007) Dr. Sreerama and seven of his students (Austin Pitcher, Todd Hoffmann, Rainer Grant, Graig Legett, Aaron Gross, Shanna Scully and Tsering Yanjon) presented their research findings.
