About Us

The American Nuclear Society / Health Physics Society student chapter of Oregon State University is a student run organization connected to the American Nuclear Society National Chapter here are Oregon State University. We run social events throughout the year and provide volunteer ourteach opportunities to students in the School of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE)

As a registered student group at Oregon State University, our ANS chapter provides nuclear education and outreach through student involvement fairs, university and department organized activities, elementary school science fairs, K-12 and public presentations. OSU ANS members also host tours of the facilities at the Radiation Center during the Dad's weekend tours in the fall and Mom’s weekend in the spring.

Outside of academics, the OSU ANS chapter engages current members, prospective students, and faculty through community events including: student departmental recreation soccer, intramural Men's soccer team, pizza nights, bowling, as well as the annual Welcome BBQ. In the current year, we have been striving to increase the activity of the student chapter with educational outreach and our own chapter's involvment with ANS National Student Conferences.
