Congratulations to New Members of Tri-Beta!
Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta) is an honor society for biology students who achieve superior academic records and who display an aptitude for and an interest in the life sciences. Its mission is to stimulate scholarship, to disseminate scientific knowledge, and to promote biological research. Leading Tri-Beta during fall semester were officers, at right: Treasurer, Natalie Mayo; Historian Kira England; President, Christopher Bastardi; Vice-President, Kahli Castagnera; and Secretary, Jean-Nicole Place. Jennifer Young is serving as historian during spring semester 2016. Dr. Surmacz is the Tri-Beta advisor.
Some of the chapter’s activities this academic year include weekly tutoring to students in introductory biology course, sponsoring Mock Interviews for biology and allied health science majors, holding bake sales to fund chapter activities, and providing coffee and donuts to Hartline students, staff and faculty during finals week. New members were initiated into Tri-Beta in an initiation ceremony for family and friends in late October. The program included a presentation by featured speaker, Dr. Robert Aronstam, Dean of the College of Science and Technology. Dean Aronstam discussed “Why the brain is not a computer: Insights on synaptic signal transduction.”
Congratulations to the following new members of Tri-Beta.
