Membership is open to students of any major who are interested in biology. If you wish to join the UW-Platteville Biology Club all you have to do is come to the meetings. Meetings times are posted in Boebel Hall. You can also contact Dr. Amanda Trewin with any questions you may have concerning the club.
Each semester the biology club sponsors interesting trips, with a focus on fun, fellowship, and biology. Some trips from previous semesters include: the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wis. the Brookfield Zoo and the Field Museum of Natural History, both in Chicago, Ill. In addition to field trips, invited speakers—which include current biology students—present research seminars, share information on summer internships, careers, and many other topics. The Biology Club is also regularly involved in educational outreach to area schools. Don't pass on this excellent opportunity to engage with other biology students and expand your own horizons in the world of biology!
Society of Pre-Health Students
The UW-Platteville Society of Pre-Health Students is an organization devoted to helping students explore and pursue careers in health care. The organization encourages volunteering within the community as well as nationally and internationally. The organization works to bring speakers from the Tri-State Area to the campus to talk about graduate health care programs they offer. Members also visit and tour medical universities and meet with representatives on their campus to learn what it takes to become a physical therapist, occupational therapist, physician’s assistant, doctor of osteopathic medicine, medical doctor, or other member of the health care services. Contact Dr. Rich Dhyanchand, club advisor, to find out how you can become involved.
