Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta)

Berry College is home to the Tau Alpha chapter of Tri-Beta, the national biological honor society. Tri-Beta cultivates intellectual interest in the natural sciences and promotes a better appreciation of the value of biological study. As an honor society, membership is limited to those students who show superior academic achievement. Specifically, members must be biology majors who have completed 12 or more hours of biology course work with at least a B average. Potential members are nominated by the biology faculty and are formally inducted during ceremonies held in the spring semester. Tri-Beta holds national and district conventions where members can present their original research. The society also publishes a journal, BIOS, in which members can publish original research. Several research scholarships and cash awards are available to Tri-Beta members. Current faculty advisor: Dr. Chris Mowry (E-mail: cmowry@berry.edu)
