ACS International Student Chapter

 

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.
