Are you looking for a student organization in which to participate? Choosing an organization related to your Human Biology major is a great a way to meet like-minded students with similar interests and make professional connections that will help you achieve your career goals.

Currently, the following student organizations are affiliated with the Human Biology Program:

  • "Prehab" Club - AT (Athletic Training), PT (Physical Therapy) and OT (Occupational Therapy) This is a club for students interested in a career path along the lines of Exercise Science. Students in this club will be taking similar classes in that degree path, so they will be resources for each other. Also this club will have more specific information on grad school options and internships available in the field.
  • Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) Is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by initiating and supporting American Cancer Society programs in college communities.

  • Tri-Beta Is a national honorary society for majors in the biological sciences. The mission of the organization is to recognize and support academic excellence in the biological sciences and encourage undergraduate research, primarily through undergraduate research awards and conferences. Because Tri-Beta is a honorary society, you must attain a specific G.P.A. to be eligible for membership. If you qualify, you will be contacted by Dr. Brian Merkel, the organization's faculty advisor.
