USI’s Biology Club aims to unify Pott College students and provide a supportive, hands-on club environment for students exploring science! We strive to give back to USI and involve students in a comfortable, cohesive environment that inspires individual growth and learning. We invite you to join us for monthly meetings and participate in outreach events throughout the year that collaborate with organizations such as Mesker Park Zoo and Girl Scouts of America.

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, Boy Scout Day and USI Biology Club Poinsettia Sale. The Biology Club also hosts a Halloween Party and an end of the semester dinner. 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.
All meetings take place at 7:00 pm in ED2113 with a virtual option via Zoom.
