The biology club serves as a forum for social activities, network possibilities, studying and research opportunities, and exciting excursions for all science majors. The biology club aims to stimulate interest in both the pure and applied biological sciences at the university and community levels and acts on behalf of biology students in campus-wide student government/club activities.
Recent Club activities include working with the local Girl Scout Council to help them earn science badges, a social trip to Dracula's Forest Haunted Hayride, helping to decorate the University Christmas tree, and hosting a booth at Marywood's Kidstuff.
The Biology club partakes in a wide variety of activities throughout an academic year. A few examples include celebrating DNA Day by having a movie night, celebrating Earth Day by having a "Plant Your Own Flower" Day, and going on trips to local facilities like the Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour.
