Tri-Beta @ BGSU

is there a BBB seal??? Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Tri-Beta intends to enrich knowledge learned in the classroom by supplementing it with opportunities to exchange ideas and information with others who share an interest in the biological sciences.

The Alpha Beta chapter of Tri-Beta,the Biological Honor Society, was founded at Bowling Green State University in 1952. There are two types of members:


Associate Member: Open to all students interested in Biology. One time fee of $35.

Regular Member: One time fee of $45. This class of membership is open to those students that:

  1. completed 3 semesters of class,
  2. are in the top 35% of their class (>3.00 GPA),
  3. have at least 3.00 GPA in 3 or more biology courses with at least one course beyond 2040/2050 and
  4. have completed 16 semester hours at BGSU if a transfer student.


In the past, Tri-Beta has had overnights at wildlife preserves, cheese tasting parties, summer picnics, halloween costume parties, raffles and bake sales. In addition, Tri-Beta members have judged local science fairs, offered tutoring services and conducted independent research projects that have been entered in competition with other Tri-Beta members.
