Students in the Biology Department pursue a wide variety of co-curricular activities. Two student clubs and one honor society are based in the Biology Department.
Medicus is a student-run organization dedicated to issues relevant to pre-health professionals. Our mission is to expose students to the ever changing medical world (through service projects, educational trips, and various other activities), and to aid in their preparation for post-graduate studies in the health field by providing speakers and information about various schools.
The Biology Club is composed of students from many disciplines who share an interest in making biology educationally stimulating (fun). The club sponsors field trips, and guest speakers, and holds regular meetings. The formal and informal events sponsored by the Bio Club allow students the opportunity to interact with their peers and with faculty.
Tri Beta is a national honor society for college and university students in the biological sciences. Elizabethtown's Rho Lambda Chapter was established in April 1996. Membership is limited to those students who have a B average or better in their biology courses and who have taken at least three courses in biology. Tri Beta works in close association with the Biology Club, working on academic and services events. Tri Beta encourages student research and provides a place to present your findings (their regional meetings) and to publish your papers (in BIOS).
