chemical society

The American Chemical Society, Student Affil-
iates is a professional organization directed
toward the chemically oriented student. Each
year different projects are conducted so as to
broaden the students' view of chemistry. This
year's projects included picnics, field trips, and
trips to Nashville, Tennessee for the South-
eastern Regional Conference of the American
Chemical Society, and the V.I. P. for the annual
Southeastern Sectional Conference of Under-
graduate Student Chemists. Bimonthly meetings
are also held in which different films pertaining
to chemistry are shown as well as talks given
by local professors.

The American Chemical Society, Student Affi-
liates is therefore dedicated to professionalizing
the undergraduate chemically oriented student
at Clemson. Through the organization the stu-
dent becomes more aware of the field of chem-
istry and is able to become acquainted with
the chemical community while at Clemson.

Clemson Graphic /- ^t
Arts Society ^^^

Shortly after the start of the first graphic arts course, some students
interested in expanding the program formed the Clemson Graphic
Arts Society, more commonly known as 'C-GAS.' The purposes
are to promote graphic arts education at Clemson and through-
out the state, and to contribute to its development on a
national scale.
Funds are raised through cooperation with other campus
organizations. Campus activities, once promoted with
drab lettered notices are now often advertised by pro-
fessional looking posters created by CGAS. Through
these actives, the quality of graphic communica-
tions at Clemson has been raised considerably
and the graduates from many disciplines have
gained new insight into the value of quality
visual communications.
Through CGAS, graphic arts has become more
than a subject of classroom study. It is
known across campus as a field of tech-
nological glamour and a means to im-
proved creative expression.
