Clubs & Organizations

Beta Beta Beta
The exclusive National Biological Honor Society of the Nu Phi chapter of Beta Beta Beta at Sacred Heart University has a goal of improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study as well as extending the boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Tri beta invites members from all levels ranging from “advanced” to “beginner” concentrations, which provides an amazing support system for all those involved. We aim to advance the members of our group by immersing them in what we love, as well as in a society of people who share the same passion. In order to make sure our organization is successful, we ask that all members are an active member of the Biology Club, have a 3.0 GPA in all science courses they have taken thus far, and a cumulative 3.0 GPA. The Nu Phi Chapter of SHU Tri Beta is open to the SHU Biology community.

The Biology Club

The primary mission of The Sacred Heart University (SHU) Biology Club is to increase the awareness of the SHU community concerning how issues related to the science of biology affect their lives. Members of the club further this mission by organizing and participating in events (presentations, speakers, films, etc.) that increase awareness of the current biological issues of our time (for example: global warming, emerging infectious disease, stem cell research). In addition, club members: travel to scientific meetings to present and view original research, participate in projects that serve the local community, and travel to locations of biological interest (zoos, nature reserves, research complexes). The Sacred heart University Biology Club is associated with the American Institute of Biological Sciences as an official student chapter and membership is open to all students of the SHU community.

"The SHU Biology Club is a very influential and helpful club to be apart of as a science student.  Biology major or not, the club is very helpful in increasing the awareness of how issues related to the science of biology affect this planet, ultimately affecting the everyday life of a human.  Partnered with the Princeton Review, the club is very helpful in helping students plan to apply to graduate programs." - Brad Cingolani, 2019

Green SHUs

The Green Sacred Heart University Students or "Green SHUs" work to raise awareness and work to improve various environmental issues, including pollution, conservation and recycling efforts. The Green SHUs educate, advocate for change, collaborate with like-minded organizations, volunteer and fundraise all to promote their environmental efforts.

"The highlight of being a part of the green SHUs are the river cleans at Veterans Park. I always liked helping the environment." - Kelly, Class of 2019
