Dear biology majors and other interested biologists,
We, the Biology Club, welcome you to Elon University! Our organization consists of students interested in biology, with many of the members being Biology, Biochemistry or Environmental Studies majors. Biology Club provides both majors and non-majors with an opportunity to get involved with biology-related extracurricular activities through its biweekly meetings and other scheduled events. The club is supervised by two faculty members within the biology department and the club’s organizational structure consists of students serving various officer positions.
The biweekly meetings include a wide range of topics, ranging from presentations by faculty speakers to discussions with Elon alumni about post-graduate experiences in the field of biology. Presentations are followed by question and answer sessions in which students have the opportunity interact with and learn more about the speaker/s and their career path within biology.
Beyond presentations, Biology Club hosts social events over the course of the year in order to foster communication and collaboration amongst science students. McMichael trick-or-treat, field trips to the zoo, and end-of-the-year barbeque are some of the activities we have done in the past. Events are structured around the interests of the new club members each year. In fact, we encourage the club members to introduce new / fun ideas during our open discussions!
In addition to the relationships developed amongst members, many find that Biology Club provides a less formal environment in which to interact with professors. This allows students to meet interesting professors who they may not have had in class or get to know their current professors better.
We sincerely hope that you will join us in broadening our scientific knowledge, forming new relationships, and just having fun. I wish you luck here at Elon and hope to meet you soon.
All the best,
Miles Grunvald '13 Biology Club President
