Phi Lambda Upsilon - Beta Lambda Chapter

Seal of Phi Lambda Upsion

North Carolina State University is proud to have the Beta Lambda Chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon (PLU), the national Honorary Chemical Society. Phi Lambda Upsilon has a chapter at NC State since 1976. The chapter promotes chemistry through the sponsorship of both scholarly and social activities. PLU provides travel funds for its members to present research at scientific meetings, reimburses graduate students for the cost of thesis preparation, sponsors a special seminar, and hosts social gatherings for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty in the Chemistry Department. Membership is offered to juniors, seniors, and graduate students in chemistry and related curricula, and is based on academic achievement. We currently have over 30 active members involved in the organization.
