The APSU student affiliate chapter (XEM) of the national American Chemical Society (ACS) has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year as an "outstanding" chapter by the ACS. This is the highest recognition the ACS confers on its student chapters and was given to only 29 of the more than 900 student chapters nationwide.

This year, XEM's activities have included ongoing "Kids in Chemistry" demonstrations, joining the Nashville ACS in hosting a chemistry day Oct. 4 at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville and joining the APSU Biology Club in making repairs at a local elephant sanctuary for national Make A Difference Day, Oct. 25.

The chapter's advisers are Drs. Ron Robertson, Todd Lafrenz and Carrie Brennan of the chemistry department.
