Biology-Chemistry - Co-curricular Activities

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.

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.


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.
