School Of Natural & Social Sciences

Friends of Natural and Social Sciences

The Friends of Natural and Social Sciences memberships help us enhance public awareness of the quality of the science programs at Purchase College as it provides research opportunities for our students. Membership funds support the students in the School of Natural and Social Sciences by:

  • sponsoring lectures that bring distinguished scholars to our campus
  • contributing to a laboratory fund that allows students to conduct publishable  research and present their research at our annual Student Symposium and at professional meetings
  • supporting a fund for end-of-year student awards
  • mentoring future scientists, doctors, lawyers, economists, healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, and educators


Annual membership levels begin at $25 for alumni, and range to the patron level of $300. Friends of Natural and Social Sciences is a member organization of the Purchase College Foundation and contributions to it are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. The Annual Membership Form, with information on how to join and support our important educational endeavor, can easily be downloaded and printed.
As a Friend of Natural and Social Sciences, you will get personal invitations to all the lecture series events, to the Annual Student Research Symposium, and your name will be listed in the Symposium program. Most importantly, your support will help guarantee the continued excellence and success of our programs.
