Biology Club

Biology Club is a great way to get involved on campus!

  • Learn about UNL research through lab tours with life science faculty and graduate students
  • Mentor and educate others through volunteer opportunities
  • Network with other life science majors - find study buddies
  • Clean up the local environment
  • Go on field trips to cool places like Cedar Point Biological Station, Ashfall Fossil Beds or Henry Doorly Zoo
