The ACS International Student Chapter at the University of Costa Rica was constituted in July, 2017 with Profs. José Leitón Chacón & Santiago Sandi-Urena as co-faculty advisers. Since then, chapter members have received several awards to attend international chemistry meetings (ACS, ABCChem) and to support their outreach program.
This February, our Chapter will co-host the visit of ACS on Campus to the UCR.
The family bingo is becoming a tradition for our Chapter. Besides an opportunity to raise travel funds, the bingo creates a fun environment for family members, students and faculty to spend time together. Prizes are donated by individuals and companies and businesses that support the Chapter’s causes.
Even better when the bingo happens around the holidays!
