About Us

The American Nuclear Society (ANS) is a not-for-profit, international, scientific, and educational organization. It was established in 1954 with the purpose of promoting the awareness and understanding of nuclear science and technology and its applications.

We are a student section of the ANS, based at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. All members of this section are students of the University of Illinois. Along with the main goal set out by the ANS, we are also an outreach society. We seek to help our members get a career in the nuclear science and technology field. We also host social events for our members.

We also have a smaller sub-organization called the Underclassmen Round Table (URT). This sub-organization was founded by us to encourage our freshmen and sophomores to be more active within the ANS.
