All students interested in biology are invited to join the Biology Club. Members of this organization participate in a variety of activities including Mesker Park Boo at the Zoo, Angel Mounds Native American Days, Boy Scout Day and USI Biology Club Poinsettia Sale. The biology club also hosts a Halloween Party and an end of the semester dinner. This year we are collaborating with a number of other Pott College Science groups on campus in such activities as the Golden Flask competition and speaker presentations. Each academic year, members of the club organize trips to area attractions such as Marengo Caves and New Harmony Historic Site. Our activities and volunteer opportunities are in no way limited to what is listed above. We encourage active participation and welcome any ideas for additional activities from our club members.
Sigma Zeta, a National Honorary Society, has been active at the University of Southern Indiana for over 30 years. It recognizes students majoring in the sciences or mathematics who have earned 30 semester hours of credit (15 hrs of math and science classes) and achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Students are nominated by faculty and the executive committee for membership into this organization. New members are accepted into the organization during a formal initiation ceremony.
Sigma Zeta members participate in several activities throughout the school year including judging science fairs, attending graduate school fairs, and presenting research at national meetings.
The Sigma Zeta Faculty advisor is Dr. Brent Summers.
