Student Organizations

Get involved in our biology community

Student organizations provide opportunities for learning outside the classroom, meeting new people, sharing and exploring interests, broadening your point of view, and developing life, work and leadership skills. 

And if that isn’t enough reason to inspire you, students who are involved tend to: 

  •      Get better grades
  •      Be more successful in their academic program
  •      Be more likely to stay in school and graduate on time
  •      Feel more satisfied with their college experience
  •      Be more marketable when job searching and applying to graduate schools
  •      Develop valuable leadership and interpersonal skills
