Beta Beta Beta

BBBBeta Beta Beta (TriBeta) is a society for students dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. It was founded in 1922 and presently has more than 175,000 persons as lifetime membership and 430 chapters. Within the Wofford Beta Beta Beta organization, there are three committees including social, service, and environmental areas. So, students get to organize and plan events on the campus related to the biological fields. The goal of the chapter is to foster relationships within the biology departments with students, professors, and local health professionals and to correlate events for the department to parallel with community service awareness. The sponsor is Dr. Natalie Spivey, and the chapter meets once a month. Biology students in various classes also get to communicate together and give advice to younger classes. Events hosted in the past include boothes at Terrier Play Day and Halloween Carnival, Heart Walk, Trash Pickup for Adopt a Highway, Healthcare Professional Tailgate, Berry Picking, and Alternative Energy Car Show. The initiation costs are $30 for associate member and $40 for regular memeber, and there is a $10 yearly fee for all members.
