The American Library Association Student Chapter of the School of Information, or ALASC, encourages community and connection among all iSchool students from across all career pathways. Student leaders are “proud to facilitate meaningful connections for our members. We have terrific events – from touring Blizzard offices, libraries, and archives, to having amazing speakers and working professionals come to help guide our members into the real world.” The club helps students connect with the American Library Association and provides meaningful connections to others in the library field. As one student shared, “I’m on the leadership track, but it is great to talk to people interested in archiving or data science and other pathways. Great ideas come from such a nice mix of different pathways!” All School of Information students are members, and benefit from networking opportunities and attending social events. Have a story to share or an event idea? Email them at email@example.com or submit your thoughts via their website https://ischoolgroups.sjsu.edu/alasc/wp-students/. The blog is a great resource for tips and alerts and news about the library world.
The Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, founded at SJSU in 1941, provides fraternity for chemistry students. They’re also known as the Chemistry Club or the Chem Club, for short! Members appreciate the chance to connect with other students majoring or minoring in the sciences, regardless of their career path (e.g . pharmacology, med school, education, business, etc.)! Club leaders wanted to share that they are “a diverse, friendly group of students who run events such as beginning of the year book sales, Halloween socials, and Winter banquets. We also help set up seminars for visiting research professors/guest speakers.” They encourage students to join the club to share school experiences and casually learn together. Active members earn additional benefits and gain leadership skills!
