MSU Club Biology

MSU Club Biology

Mission

We are a student-run organization for biology majors, pre-professional majors, and students with an interest in biology. Our purpose is to enhance the opportunities available to those with interests similar to our own. We take field trips, participate in conventions, develop awareness of science in our community through outreach programs, and basically have lots of fun!

History

The MSU Club Biology was established by Professor Emeritus Om Madhok in 1996. One goal of the club is to encourage closer professional relationships between students and faculty in order to facilitate interest in undergraduate research. The existence of the club also provides a forum for recognizing and awarding academic excellence among the biology students. Furthermore, the Biology Club engages in a variety of service activities within the community such as science fair judging and participation in Science Olympiad.

Phi Sigma

Phi Sigma is a national society that was founded in March 1915 at Ohio State University to promote academic achievement and research in the biological sciences. There are currently 41 active chapters with approximately 45,000 members. Minot State University installed the Gamma Xi Chapter of Sigma Xi in December of 1999.
