SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES OFFERED BY CBC
The Chemistry and Biochemistry Club (CBC) is the official student organization affiliated with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry within the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The CBC is founded on five basic ideals: Outreach, Opportunity, Networking, Research, and Education. Recently, the CBC took part in the Fall 2010 National Chemistry Week, where members volunteered to work with students in grades K-12 on how to clean up oil spills, responding to the "green" attitude of today's scientific community. The CBC has added a new section to their public display case entitled "Research Lab Spotlights", where each week an on-campus research lab and advisor are highlighted. This effort aims to make information regarding undergraduate research opportunities more accessible to CBC members by providing summaries of various professors' research projects. Because the CBC acts as a liaison between students and the faculty within the Department, a number of social events have also been hosted, whereby students and faculty can interact and network with one another. Students involved with the CBC also have access to funding from the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Inter-Club Council. The CBC provides an interactive setting for students to come together in a collective effort to better their experience at California State University, Fullerton. If interested, please contact current club officers or stop by the club room in MH-500A.
