Getting Hands-On Experience
St. Mary's chemistry and biochemistry majors were busy this summer participating in research and medical internships on campus and around the country. Ashton Engdahl (above) spent her summer developing a green synthesis of functionalized pyrroles on campus with a paid research internship through our campus SMURF program.

St. Mary's American Chemical Society Student Affiliates
SMACS is an organization dedicated to helping people, both on campus and in the community, enjoy chemistry. We meet every other week to discuss the different activities we are involved in, and others we might be interested in doing in the future. We usually have a fun demonstration in the second half of the meeting. Anyone interested in chemistry is welcome to join us.
