Student Organizations


Beta Beta Beta

Beta Beta Beta is a national collegiate honor society recognizing achievement
in the biological sciences. This organization is dedicated to promoting involvement
in research, particularly at the undergraduate level. Regular membership requires
a 3.0 GPA and completion of one year of biology coursework. However, any interested
student who does not meet these criteria may join as an associate member.
Our chapter meets biweekly and most meetings include guest speakers.

Geo Club

Geo Club’s mission is to inform its members of local, national and worldwide
environmental issues. Discussion, trips and volunteer activities are centered
on the geological and geographical aspects of today’s world. If you like the
outdoors and want to travel (near or far) to discover some of the most
fascinating sites on Earth, then join Geo Club!

Mathematical Association of America

The MAA Student Chapter is designed to encourage students to continue study
in the mathematical sciences. It provides opportunities to meet with other
students interested in mathematics and to interact with prominent mathematicians
at state, regional and national meetings. Student Chapter members need not be
mathematics majors; we seek to offer all students interested in exploring
mathematics outside of the regular classroom a chance to challenge their
intellect and learn more about the role of mathematics in our world.

Parasitology Club

The club meets weekly for informal discussions concerned with host-parasite
interactions. Discussions center on research articles, proposed or in-progress
research projects, and reviews of parasite-related topics. Participants also
use the club meetings to practice upcoming presentations at scientific meetings.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the basic biology, ecology, epidemiology,
evolution, systematics, physiology, behavior and relevance of eukaryotic
endoparasites, ectoparasites, bacteria and viruses.

Southern Chemical Society

The Georgia Southern University Student Affiliates chapter of the ACS was founded to promote the field of
chemistry, to participate in civic and university events, and to provide the public
with knowledge of the chemical sciences. Any student studying chemistry,
biochemistry, or another science at Georgia Southern University is eligible to join.

Society of Physics Students (SPS)

The Society of physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics.

Within SPS is housed Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics honor society, which elects members on the basis of outstanding academic achievement. This unique two-in-one society operates within the American Institute of Physics, an umbrella organization for ten other professional science societies.
