The Mu Tau chapter of Beta Beta Beta (or Tri-Beta) is the Biological Honor Society at CBU. Tri-Beta encourages those students interested in Biology to express their scientific passions through events such as going behind the scenes of the Memphis Zoo, traveling to the Tennessee Safari Park, or touring local exhibits and healthcare facilities such as University of Tennessee Health Science Center and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
In addition, Tri-Beta has several philanthropy events that benefit both the Church Health here in Memphis and the Ishaka Health Plan that provides services in Uganda. These events include bake sales, trivia night, Bowling for Uganda, Students vs Faculty Volleyball tournament, and Church Health Week.
Tri-Beta also acts as an aid in students' professional endeavors. We host a mock interview event where students can interview with professionals in their respected fields. We also provide monthly Coffee and Conversations events with local graduate students involved in Pharmacy, Medical, Dental, and Physician Assistant schools.
Overall, Tri-Beta offers a variety of events to not only help students achieve their professional goals, but to also be involved in community events and to have fun with other members.
Tri-Beta meets every other Thursday at 12:30 PM in Cooper-Wilson 105.
