American Chemical Society (Chemistry)
Officially recognized by the ACS, this chapter of chemistry and biochemistry majors hold bi-weekly meetings, attend monthly American Chemical Society dinners at various locations to hear industry updates, and meet to discuss job opportunities and career decisions. The group performs four annual service projects that vary from year to year.

Applied Behavior Analysis Club (Psychology)
The Applied Behavior Analysis Club is a Psychology club aimed at students who have interests in applying behavior analytic principles to everyday behavior such as helping children and families replace problem behavior with more prosocial and acceptable behaviors. The club strives to educate it’s members about career opportunities in behavior analysis, ranging broadly from careers as a behavior therapist working with individuals who have special needs, as well as careers in organizational behavior management, politics, education, health and wellness, etc. The club brings in speakers including those from potential employers, participates on and off campus activities, and completes service projects related to improving people’s lives in the community.
Faculty Advisor: Dr. Bethany Raiff
Association for Computing Machinery (Computer Science)
Club members belong to a nationwide collective of computer science majors who wish to extend their field of expertise beyond the classroom. Annual activities include seminars from software/hardware companies and experts on selected computer topics, programming contests, chess tournaments, web design and programming, large multiplayer LAN game parties, and pizza parties. Members enjoy special national membership discounts and info via ACM National www.acm.org. ACM Rowan elvis.rowan.edu/acm.
Biology Club (Biological Sciences)
The Biology Club organizes a number of different educational and social events every year. The Club is also engaged in numerous activities which include research-oriented field trips to the Department's Environmental Field Station in Cape May. Other field trips have included the Mutter Medical Museum in Philadelphia and Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Math Team (Mathematics)
Math majors and non-majors join to build a community of students to share enthusiasm for math and aid others in the understanding and conceptualization of math. Activities include volunteer tutoring for Rowan students and traveling to conferences and competitions. For more information, visit Math Team website.

Physics Club (Physics)
This diverse group of students is active in learning about physics by going on trips, attending seminars, doing research and going to conference. The group is also active in outreach to middle schools and high schools, offers free tutoring to non-majors, and collecting donations for worthy causes. This club has received numerous awards from the National Office of Society of Physics Students, including 7 consecutive Outstanding Chapter Awards and three Sigma Pi Sigma Undergraduate Research Awards, in addition to hosting two regional meeting in the past few years.
The members of the Pre-Professional Club invite speakers who have expertise in health or other professional fields, in preparing for application to medical, dental or other professional schools, and in visiting places of interest.
Psi Chi (Psychology)

The Psychology Alliance (Psychology)
The primary focus of the club relates to psychology, but any Rowan University student pursuing any major is welcome to join. Meeting Dates are listed on the website. Some goals are as follows: maintain a self-sufficient organization, inform psychology students of their career and educational options, promote Psi Chi and its academic goals, improve the Rowan psychology program through related social activities, and enhance the relationship between the faculty and students.
STEM Symposium (Biological Sciences)
Not a separate club per se, but a group of students under the umbrella of the Biology Club and other student groups. These students help run the University's Annual Rowan Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Student Research Symposium held each April. Each year several student coordinators plus numerous helpers are required for the success of the Symposium. Generally the student coordinators come from the Biological Sciences Department, but this is not a strict requirement. Student clubs that provide substantial help for the Symposium may count these efforts as a service project. STEM Online.
