Student Life

Through involvement in the College of Science and Mathematics, students can develop closer ties with other students in the same major. A variety of clubs and organizations are available to students within the college.

Student Clubs and Organizations

Biology Club

Hello from Biology Club!!

My name is Adam Koraym and I am a Senior Psychology concentrating in Behavioral Neuroscience major and the President of the Biology Club for the 2016–17 academic school year. The Biology Club offers many fun and exciting activities to participate in. We have offered trips to the Newport Aquarium, Cincinnati and Columbus Zoos, as well as camping and hiking trips and visits to the Omnimax Theater. Our members are involved in meetings, volunteering programs, community events, and other social events on campus!! As a club, we want this to be a great opportunity for students of all backgrounds and majors to come together with a common interest in Science, and with a common goal of having a good time and meeting new friends! We collaborate with many organizations and would love to have you. Definitely come out to our meetings and join our organization—you won't want to miss this during your time at Wright State!

Also, check out our Facebook page for additional information and updates: Wright State University Biology Club! 

If you have any questions about Biology Club or how you can get involved, please feel free to contact any of the officers! We are looking forward to seeing you at our events starting in the Fall!

Pre-Health Student Organizations

Pre-Health Student Organizations at Wright State are devoted to aiding you in your understanding of the pre-health fields.

Students for Human Organ Donation

Hundreds of students on college campuses across the country have taken action to make a difference in the lives of the thousands of Americans in need of an organ transplant. Wright State has recently established its own chapter of Students for Organ Donation. This is a unique opportunity to gain real leadership experience while producing measurable results in an effort to improve the lives of thousands. Students participate in general awareness campaigns and registering as many individuals as possible for organ and tissue donation. With an ever-increasing number of Americans in need of an organ transplant, the national organ shortage is a growing crisis. However, this is one issue in which the efforts of students can truly make a difference.

Ecology Seminars

The Ecology luncheons are for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty with an interest in the field of ecology. Seminars are usually presented from graduate students and faculty within the Department. There is no membership involved, only participation.

Biology Graduate Lounge

Students pursuing their graduate degrees, whether masters or doctoral, have an opportunity to stay in touch outside the classroom and research lab. A new graduate lounge was created with the opening of the Diggs Life Sciences building. This lounge, located in room 108 Diggs, provides a meeting area, refrigerator, computer access, and video screen. Students can take a break from their research and mingle with friends. In addition, students are invited to attend departmental picnics and retreats.

For more information about the Biology Graduate Programs, contact Laura Buerschen (Graduate Advisor) or Dr. Scott Baird (Chair, Graduate Committee).
