Organization for Students Interested in Science

Posted by Tim on August 31, 2020 in Academics, Community Announcements

My name is Ben Rein, I’m a Neuroscience PhD Candidate here at SUNY Buffalo. I recently launched a free, online organization designed to provide guidance and direction to students interested in science, and I was wondering if you may be interested in sharing our information with students in the Honors College to make them aware of our free resources!

As I’ve made my way through my bachelors & PhD degrees, I’ve found that science is a unique and complex career, with many major questions and decisions. In my experience, the best way to find answers has been talking with professors, graduate students, and others in the field. However, many students have trouble making these connections, and as a result they unfortunately struggle to find their way in science. To help address this issue, ASC is designed to recruit students interested in science and connect them with professionals in the field to 1) ask questions, 2) build their scientific network, 3) practice presenting their work, and 4) gain valuable guidance and mentorship. This group is completely free to join, and already has over 250 members from 17 countries worldwide. All are welcome – we encourage students at all levels, and with any interests to participate.

By joining ASC, students gain access to online meetings that rotate between Q&As addressing common questions, breakout networking sessions allowing members to meet and engage with one another, and scientific presentations to help members identify their passions and interests. We are also planning to launch a mentorship program that will pair members based on their interests. One of our goals is to establish a large network of scientists, to promote cooperation within and between fields. We hope to unite the next generation of scientists, and shape science into a more collaborative field.  

If you or your students are interested in joining or learning more, please visit our website:

Thank you!
