Student Organizations for Those Interested in Research

TriBeta National Biological Honor Society

Beta Beta Beta (βββ) is a national honor and professional society for students in the biological sciences. A TriBeta chapter offers its members activities and experiences that enrich and extend but do not duplicate the primary requirements for the biology major. TriBeta was established in 1922 in Oklahoma; Ohio University's chapter of TriBeta was established in 1994.

The national chapter of TriBeta publishes a national journal BIOS, to recognize outstanding individual and chapter accomplishments. This journal publishes articles by TriBeta members and articles of national society affairs. Subjects covered include articles on current research, developments in biology, biology as a profession, as well as graduate and profession training for biologists. Special emphasis is placed on publication of undergraduate research papers. TriBeta also holds regional conferences, where students can present their research.

Microbiology Student Organization

This organization promotes student involvement in microbiology and related fields. MSO furthers the education of individuals with interests in microbiology and promotes development of solid relationships between students and faculty to make the college experience more enjoyable.

Wildlife Club

This club is dedicated to exposing its members to the myriads of animals that call Ohio their home. Hiking, camping, conservation work and simple viewing of animals is the focus of the club. Anyone is welcome as long as they treat wildlife with respect. The club meets about three times a quarter to plan events, witness wildlife presentations and enjoy each other's company.
