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


TriBeta (Iota Upsilon Chapter) is a national honor society to promote excellence and research in the life sciences.
TriBeta members have the opportunity to publish their research in a national research journal, BIOS, or present their research by oral or poster presentations at annual regional conferences and biennial national conventions.

National Membership Requirements:

  • Be a declared life science major
  • Completed 36 credit hours
  • Completed at least three courses in biological or life sciences (at least one 200-level or above) with grades of 'B' or better in each.
  • One-time Dues for lifetime membership: $50

Other Opportunities


If you are looking for a light-hearted group, consider N.U.T.S (Nebraskans for the Upgraded Treatment of Squirrels.) N.U.T.S. aims to raise awareness of and appreciation for all life forms on campus, primarily squirrels. Contact Dr. Chad Brassil for more information.
