Beta Beta Beta

About the Organization
“Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta) is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Since its founding in 1922, more than 200,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 553 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.”
The Chi chapter of BBB at Drury is one of the oldest chapters in the nation and was founded in 1929.

Beta Beta Beta meets in the Trustee Science Center once a month on Thursdays at 5 PM.
