Events & Services


Professional

Professional Chairs: Stephanie Robinson, Pearl Lee

The professional committee is responsible for planning professional events, such as information sessions with companies like Genentech and Chevron, and student and professor panels regarding research or graduate school. In addition, we work with the American Chemical Society (ACS) to host seminars to show how chemistry is applied to different jobs and fields. We also volunteer at ACS outreach events every semester, including Family Science Night. To support the College of Chemistry, we help out at their semesterly events: AutumnFest and SpringFest. Our members-only workshop series, called ProTalks, teaches skills that can be applied to brothers' academic and professional careers. Our two main networking events are Pizza with Professors in the Fall and Wine and Cheese in the Spring, typically held in 775 Tan Hall.

Social/Banquet

Social Chair: Ashley Nensel; Banquet Chair: Tanushi Sahai

The Social Committee plans fun activities for the brothers, including Assassins, frisbee on Memorial Glade, Korean barbeque, and weekend trips to San Francisco. The brothers also bond at volunteering events, including Berkeley Project and Suicide Prevention Walk. At the beginning of every semester, the Vice President and Social Chair plan an overnight retreat; in the past, we have gone to Monterey Bay and Lake Tahoe. Recently, we have been hanging out with our fellow brothers from the Alpha Alpha Chapter at Stanford University!
Every year, the Banquet Committee organizes and executes an end-of-the-school-year banquet for members and alumni. It is a great event for current members to connect with alumni and faculty and to reflect on the memories that were made during the year.

Tutoring

Tutoring Chair: Brighton Skeel

The Tutoring Committee provides academic resources to the fraternity and student body. Our resources include a test bank for brothers only and weekly study sessions. We also host workshops on topics such as interpreting NMR spectrums and writing effective lab reports. Office hours in 121 Gilman Hall are offered in chemistry and most of the pre-req chemistry major classes. Check out the Alpha Chi Sigma Tutoring Facebook page for more information.

Expansion

Expansion Chair: Won Ryu

The Expansion Committee is our newest committee in the fraternity. We worked hard during the Summer of 2015 to initiate four new members from the Alpha Chi Sigma colony at Oregon State University and our new faculty advisor, Dr. MaryAnn Robak. As their parent chapter, we strive to keep in touch with the brothers at OSU so we can mentor them and help their chapter grow. We are also looking forward to working with Dr. Robak at future fraternity events.

Fundraising

Fundraising Chair: Sammy Marinkovich

The Fundraising Committee’s goal is to raise money for the fraternity. We typically host our fundraisers in the Chemistry Plaza, but in the past few semesters, we expanded to Sproul Plaza with our In-N-Out and Thai Ice Tea fundraisers. We also host off-campus fundraisers with businesses, such as ShareTea and Menchie’s. In the Fall, we sell the parking spots at our house for football games, and in the Spring, our Cal Day fundraiser is the periodic table of cupcakes.
