Students within the biology department can participate in several clubs related to course studies and research. Examples include:
Probe and Scalpel Society
This organization is composed of students who would like to share their interest in the field of science with their fellow students. The organization functions primarily as a forum for the exchange of current ideas in the field of science.
The Probe and Scalpel Society sponsors guest speakers, film programs, and open discussions on breaking technology. Field trips are also arranged to observe medical, dental, and biological research as well as visits to aquariums and museums.
The Green Team
The Green Team works to raise campus awareness about environmental issues and the environment in general. Activities include but are not limited to speakers, clean-ups, and various Earth Day events. The club hopes to increase the awareness, enjoyment, and appreciation of the beauty of nature, as well as to learn more about it.
Beta Beta Beta
Beta Beta Beta is an honors society for undergraduates who are dedicated to improving our understanding of biology and biological research. The national society was founded in 1922 and the Chi Zeta chapter at Saint Anselm College was established in 1996. Each year the Chi Zeta chapter holds an induction ceremony for new members. In order to be eligible for membership, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher and GPA of 3.00 or higher in their Biology Department major.
