Chemistry Club


Join the Club!

The NIU Chemistry Club is a student affiliate chapter of the American Chemical Society and is open to anyone with an interest in Chemistry. The purpose of this organization is to:

  • Promote interest in chemistry and the chemical professions
  • Aid understanding of the field of chemistry
  • Provide interaction among individuals engaged in the study of chemistry

The Chem Club sponsors several outreach events each year, including the Chem Demo Night, a public favorite. The club organizes and presents an evening of chemistry demonstrations at least once a year, always offering a different theme. The Chem Club also participates in STEMFest every fall, interacting with young people and their parents from across the Northern Illinois region to explore the STEM fields and to consider future careers.

If you are looking for more information on Chemistry Club or would like to join, please email our president, Corey at, to become part of our mailing list to receive news and updates on everything Chemistry Club!
