Choosing a major or minor in biology can open doors to many diverse career opportunities. The Biology Club was established in the late sixties and gives students a place to interact socially and academically. We provide many activities that are not school-related, which allow students a chance to take a break from their studies for a few hours. Students can ask questions about biology classes or faculty, or just shoot the breeze with  other biology students. The club is also one of the main vehicles for information flow between the students and the Biology Department. Through the Biology Club, students can contribute to service projects and fundraisers and interact  with the biology faculty. We have meetings 1-2 times a month and plan 2-3 outings per semester.  The biology club provides a chance to meet other students, interact with faculty, and looks great on a resume!

Welcome back!
