XEM at STEAM RUSH 2017
 STEAM RUSH 2017 was a success! Shown here are XEM representing the Chemistry Department at the event.

Chi Epsilon Mu (XEM) is Austin Peay State University's chemistry club. We are dedicated to advancing chemistry in our system and surroundings, while also having some fun. We meet once a month to enjoy company, free food, and learning a little chemistry together. XEM provides outreach to neighboring schools in the greater Clarksville-Montgomery County Area, which inspires young students to pursue fields in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Along with outreaching to younger generations, XEM also caters to college students by providing them with guest speakers in the various fields of chemistry and provides tutoring in the various core disciplines of chemistry. Times and dates for the 2017-2018 school year will be determined soon and added to our above calendar and social media. XEM members not only enjoy the wonderful view of chemistry laboratories and lecture halls, they enjoy competing and participating in social events in and around campus.
