Student Organizations

Student organizations are a great way to meet fellow students, as well as get involved in activities in the department, on campus, and in the community. The Department of Biology urges undergraduates to consider joining one of these excellent groups.

Beta Beta Beta. Tri-Beta is the national biological honor society. It is dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study, particularly among undergraduates. Georgia Southern’s chapter is one of more than 406 chapters at universities around the country. Tri-Beta sponsors a range of activities that promote a career in biology such as prominent speakers, field trips to professional schools, and career workshops. Any student with good academic standing is welcome in Tri-Beta.

Biology Club. The mission of the Biology Club is to provide students, of any major with an interest in biology, a chance to meet other like-minded students in an informal setting. The Biology Club provides an opportunity for people to become involved in social/service activities related to biology (e.g., field trips, film viewings, guest speakers, community/ university outreach, etc.). Club meetings and activities are a venue for Georgia Southern students, faculty, and staff interested in sharing their interest of biology with each other and the community.

Student Alliance for a Green Earth (SAGE). SAGE is Georgia Southern University’s environmental club. This organization is focused on improving environmental awareness and promoting responsibility by working with Georgia Southern students, faculty, staff, and administrators. SAGE organizes many campus events (such as the annual Earth Day celebration) and participates in a range of community events (such as beach and river cleanups). If you are interested in helping the environment and meeting other students with similar interests, get involved in SAGE.
