Biology-Chemistry - Co-curricular Activities

Biology-Chemistry Peer Mentor Program

The Biology-Chemistry Peer Mentor Program is a mentoring program designed to provide a first year biology-chemistry student with the opportunity to connect with and learn from a upperclass science student mentor who can share insights, celebrate successes, and help navigate challenges. 

Pre-Professionals of Science

The Pre-Professionals of Science Club (PPS) 
helps students interested in becoming science professionals (physicians, dentists, veterinarians, pharmacists, optometrists, etc.) to prepare themselves to achieve their goals with organization and confidence. The club can help students participate in activities (internships, service) viewed positively by graduate schools and be more aware of how to better prepare for the professional admissions tests, interviews, and graduate school itself.

Pre-Pharmacy Club

Pre-Pharmacy Club is to provide resources and opportunities to introduce Manchester undergraduate students to the profession of pharmacy and educate students on how to become competitive applicants to the Doctor of Pharmacy Program. Our resources include presentations and meetings with professors from our Pharmacy school, which include pharmacists with experience in research, clinical practice, ambulatory practice, and nuclear pharmacy practice. Our opportunities include mock interviews, volunteering, and shadowing.

American Chemical Society

American Chemical Society (ACS) is for students interested in the chemistry or biology-chemistry majors. It is a professional organization of over 150,000 chemists. Our student affiliate chapter (chartered in 1959) has received national recognition awards for 13 of the last 15 years. The yearly agenda consists of monthly socials that may include films, visiting speakers or field trips. Activities include student summer research programs, a get-to-know-you fall picnic and a Christmas party.


Beta Beta Beta (TriBetais a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Since its founding in 1922, more than 200,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 553 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
