Biology Organization of Graduate Students

What Does BOGS Do?

BOGS main goal is to bring the busy lives of the biology graduate students together. Once a year the graduate students identify a distinguished alumnus from the Department’s graduate
program. BOGS invites the distinguished alumnus to campus to present a seminar on their
current research. Also, current graduate students spend time with this individual to learn how
they too may develop a productive and distinguished career after leaving Georgia Southern.
BOGS participates in many local initiatives that are related to biology and/or the environment.
Often we work with other on campus organizations such as SAGE, Biology Club, or the Center
for Sustainability, as well as in the community (e.g. Great American Clean Up, River’s Alive, etc.)
Finally, BOGS also organizes many social events to give the hard working Biology graduates
students a short reprieve from their intense research and course schedules.

Can You Get Involved?

Any Georgia Southern Biology graduate student is welcome to join BOGS! All graduate
students are encouraged to come to social events and become part of the graduate student
community! We have our own Facebook page that announces our weekly outings – so follow
us and get involved!
