Beta Beta Beta
Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) Biological Honor Society is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending the boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. It emphasizes a three-fold program: stimulation of scholarship, dissemination of scientific knowledge and promotion of biological research.
TriBeta gives students the opportunity to report on their findings in the laboratory through BIOS, the journal of the society. Published since 1930, BIOS is a quarterly journal that publishes articles of interest to the society, articles written by undergraduates and articles of general biological interest.
Beta Beta Beta was founded in 1922 at Oklahoma University by Frank G. Brooks and a group of his students, and by 1925 had become a national honor society for the biological sciences. Since then TriBeta has grown enormously. Currently, there are 380 chapters of TriBeta and over 137,000 students have been inducted into the organization. Susquehanna's chapter, Lambda Sigma, was established in 1975. Tammy Tobin-Janzen, Ph.D., is the faculty advisor.
