Welcome to the University of Illinois REACT Program!

FALL 2018

Do you like working with children? Do you want to be a reason why chemistry is fun and interactive for children? And for all James Scholar students, do you want to earn honors credit (without having to write essays)? Then we are a perfect fit! 

Like us on our facebook page.

Orientation meetings for the Fall 2018 semester will be September 10, 11, and 12 in 319 Gregory Hall. General chemistry students should come at 5pm, and organic chemistry students should come at 6pm. If you are interested in participating solely as a volunteer (no honors credit), please come at 5pm as well.

Registration for REACT as a volunteer and for James Scholar credit will open at 8am on Thursday, September 13 and close at 11:59pm on Thursday, September 20. If you have any questions, please contact us at thereactprogram@gmail.com.


Prep room sessions will start the week of Monday, February 19th.  If you have a conflict with your scheduled time, please contact us right away.  To view your prep room time, simply log in to the ATLAS page where you completed your registration and you can view all of your registration information.

The first round of visits and training sessions will be assigned in the next week or two, so be sure to check your emails frequently so you don't miss your assignment.

For all REACT events, you should report to the REACT office in 028 Chemistry Annex for attendance unless instructed otherwise.

(Note: If you are an honors student and plan to no longer continue, you will not earn credit.)
