Student Organizations in Science and Engineering
COSE students are involved in student organizations across campus and within academic programs. Getting involved in COSE-related organizations is an ideal way for students to gain additional knowledge, subject-matter experience and connections. Student organizations related to our degree programs include these groups:
- Alpha Epsilon Delta is a national organization for students who have an interest in pursuing a career in the health professions. We host various activities for our members, such as medical school tours, meetings with guest speakers who are doctors, medical students, or other health occupational representatives, volunteering opportunities, and social activities.
- American Chemical Society is for students who are interested in chemistry. Its purpose is to stimulate an interest in chemistry; to assist its members and others in the study of chemistry; and finally, to alter the way people think about chemistry: the benefits it has provided mankind, the promises it makes for our future, and the burden of responsibilities its researchers must bear.
- American Red Cross Club has a student membership of all interests.
- Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) is a national honor society for students interested in in understanding and promoting the biological sciences. TriBeta supports the HCU Biology Club, which is open to all students who possess an interest in biology and have taken a biology course at HCU. Biology Club and TriBeta conduct biological research, participate in community service events, and take field trips to biologically relevant activities. We invite guest speakers, including our own HCU TriBeta alumni, to discuss research opportunities and various biologically related careers
- Robotics and Engineering Organization (REO) is for any engineering student.
- Pre-Dental Society (PDS) is for students who are interested in dentistry.
- Pre-Optometry Professional Society (POPS) This organization is dedicated to students who are interested in the field of optometry, ophthalmology and careers pertaining to vision. Members work to inform others about these careers and provide volunteer hours to various vision health groups. Our club invites guest speakers who facilitate understanding about vision health and the careers centered around it. We invite optometrists and ophthalmologists to discuss the current trends and new advances in technology, care and regulations
- Pre-Physician Assistant Society (PPAS) The mission is to inform and assist Pre-PA students in their journey to PA school. We have guest speakers (PAs, PA students, etc.), volunteer events, general information meetings, suture clinics, holiday get-togethers.
The following student chapters are under development and will be added as enrollment in the new engineering degrees grows:
- Association for Computing Machinery
- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
- National Society of Black Engineers
- Society of Women Engineers
