Honor Societies

Many of our students are inducted into chemistry honor societies such as Phi Lambda Upsilon and Sigma Zeta.

Moreau Honors Program

The College’s Moreau Honors Program brings together outstanding faculty and students from all disciplines.

American Chemical Society Certification

To graduate with a certification from the American Chemical Society, a Stonehill Chemistry major must complete just a few additional courses beyond the College's degree requirements.

Chemistry/Biochemistry Club

An affiliate of the American Chemical Society, the Chemistry/Biochemistry Club is an active and award-winning group of students who organize several activities every year. Some recent examples are:

  • Mole Day Party (October 23, 6:02 p.m.)
  • National Chemistry Week at the Museum of Science
