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 670 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Biennial national conventions of student and faculty members began in that year and in 1930 the society journal, BIOS, began publication of student research, articles of interest in biologists and society news.
The Rho Zeta Chapter was founded in 2009 and is the largest independent club on campus with more than 40 active members. Rho Zeta contributes each year in events like Mercy Day, the Red Cross Blood Drive, Sandwich Ministry, Girls in STEM, the annual conference and many more! Tribute Rho Zeta accepts members with majors in biology, public health, nutrition and nursing.
