Biology Student Organizations
There are many clubs and organizations at Drexel and students are encouraged to get involved beyond the classroom. For Biology majors, the following organizations are embedded in the Biology department and many of our students are members and officers in these discipline related organizations.
Biology Graduate Student Association (BGSA)
The Biology Graduate Student Association (BGSA) was established in 2005 to provide a forum for information exchange between graduate students, faculty and administration. This includes issues such as: course development, teaching and research assistant responsibilities, department research environment and activities, and expectations for degree fulfillment.
The BGSA's mission is to encourage an active social environment among existing, new and prospective graduate students; to elevate the academic experience for both graduate and undergraduate students in the Department of Biology; to advance the research environment; to promote service in the surrounding community; and to set the stage for high-quality graduate student and faculty recruitment.
The BGSA is an organization that falls under the auspices of the University-wide Graduate Student Association. Through this affiliation, BGSA obtains funding for activities and promotes communication between graduate students in the Department of Biology and the rest of the University. The Department of Biology is a very diverse group, with research interests in molecular biology, immunology, ecology, paleobiology and more. The BGSA fosters communication among the graduate students within the department.
If you are interested in collaborating and/or participating in BGSA events, please contact our Social Chair below or contact us through the BGSA Facebook page.
