This portion of the Biology Department web site is devoted to our current students. From here you can find information about student organizations and see what activities they sponsor. The students who have recently been honored on the President's List and the Dean's List can be seen. Also, you can view a little history when you visit the pages for the annual Academic and Scholarship Award Recipients. Finally, you can check on list of students and their advisors.
Students are encouraged to participate in the many available activities. Our Biology Club is very active. It hosts outside speakers periodically, holds faculty-student athletic and social events, and organizes a variety of field trips. The National Honor Society for Biology, Beta Beta Beta (better known as "Tri-Beta"), inducts about 10 qualified members every spring. Students find that through both academic and social activities they get to know the Department's faculty and staff as well as their classmates and come to feel a part of the Biology Department.
