Making the most of studying Chemistry

Published: 17 December 2013

First year Chemistry students have been finding their feet throughout the first term with a little help from ChemSoc. The student-run society brings people together through socials, organises football, rugby, badminton and mixed netball teams in the University’s intra-mural sports leagues, sells its unique hoodies and will be running some careers and study-focused events for the first time during this academic year.

"You can study Chemistry without getting involved with ChemSoc ..." says its President, and third year student James Eills, "... but you would be missing out on the chance to meet up with fellow chemists and a wide variety of exciting events." Although this autumn's events began with a traditional pub crawl around Portswood, James is quick to explain there are also plenty of activities that don't involve alcohol.

New for 2013 are two lectures. One will feature a panel of alumni who now have careers outside chemistry, the second will consist of third and fourth year students talking to first and second years about the advantages of signing up for summer placements. ChemSoc will also host talks from PhD students from the different research groups to give undergraduates more of an idea of the range of projects they can choose in their final year at Southampton.

"There's a warm welcome for all students, undergraduates and postgraduates at ChemSoc," says James. "It's free to join, you can keep in touch through our Facebook page and even get involved by becoming a member of our committee during your studies."
