Despite low membership, the club continues to hold meetings.

The chemistry club meets at 3:30 p.m. every Thursday in Room 119 in the chemistry and geology building to provide tutoring and also contribute to local charities.
In the past the club has sent volunteers to the San Antonio Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity.
Brittney Gonzales, a biology pre-pharmacy sophomore, president of the Chemistry Club and chemistry tutor, said she enjoys helping people to become more knowledgeable and boosting the club members’ enthusiasm to pursue their goals.
Chemistry Professor Dr. Usha Krishnan said, “Many people don’t know that the club exists.”
Recently, the club has not been able to participate in local charity work or hold the fundraisers due to low membership.
Krishnan said it’s also due to scheduling conflicts with the members.
Anyone can attend the club meetings, and those who have knowledge of chemistry are welcome to volunteer their tutoring services.
Though chemistry is the club’s main focus, the tutoring also covers college algebra and pre-calculus.
Anyone interested in becoming a member should attend a meeting. Students can also visit OrgSync and click “San Antonio College Chemistry Club” and “join.” The club is open to all majors, and there is no special selection for members to join, Gonzales said in an email.
