  Student Organizations  

The following student organizations are associated with Avila Biology.

Beta Beta Beta
The Pi Iota chapter of Tri-beta was established at Avila in the Fall of 1998.  Tri-beta is an honor and professional society for students of the biological sciences, particularly undergraduates.  It seeks to encourage scholarly attainment to cultivate intellectual interest in the life sciences, and to promote a better appreciation of the value of biological study.  It encourages undergraduate research and "emphasizes a three-fold program: stimulation of scholarship; dissemination of scientific knowledge; and promotion of biological research."  Tri-beta members receive Bios, a journal of scientific research by members of the society.  Members can submit original research articles to this journal for publication and can present papers at meetings at the regional and national levels.  Meetings of Beta Beta Beta are sometimes held in conjunction with the Biomed Club.


Biomed Club
The Biomed club is an organization of prehealth professions and science majors.  Most students in these programs actively participate in the club.  The club was formed to allow students interested in the health professions to explore career opportunities by sponsoring speakers,  going on field trips, and holding social events on and off-campus.  Joint meetings are sometimes conducted with Beta Beta Beta.
