Beta Beta Beta

Who are we?

Beta Beta Beta, or TriBeta, is the Baylor Biology Honor Society, and we are open to all majors that relate to the science of biology. Our goal is to facilitate discussion and support the academic pursuits of our members as they relate to biology. This includes a variety of activities including service, research, hearing from guest speakers, and socializing as an organization while striving to achieve academic excellence in this field. We look to connect our members with opportunities within the Baylor community as well as each other and create a supportive environment as we strive toward a common goal.
