Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta)

Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society at HCU (TriBeta at HCU) is a national honor society dedicated to students who are interested 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, such as the Houston Zoo, Houston Museum of Natural Science, and The Health Museum. We invite guest speakers, including our own HCU TriBeta alumni, to discuss research opportunities and various biologically related careers. HCU TriBeta members are also encouraged to publish their research in the Beta Beta Beta journal, BIOS.
