Beta Beta Beta Honor Society
Kappa Gamma Chapter

The Kappa Gamma chapter of Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society (Tri-Beta) was started in 1966 when Georgia College was still a women's college. Tri-Beta is an Honor Society for Biology students.

It seeks to encourage scholarly attainment in this field of learning by reserving its regular membership for those who achieve superior academic records and who indicate special aptitude for and major interest in the life sciences.

It desires to cultivate intellectual interest in the natural sciences and to promote a better appreciation of the value of biological study and thus welcomes into associate membership all those students who are interested in biology. Beta Beta Beta also endeavors to extend the boundaries of man's knowledge of nature by encouraging new discoveries through scientific investigation and to this end encourages undergraduate students to begin research work and report their findings in the journal of the society, BIOS.
It emphasizes, therefore, a three-fold program: stimulation of scholarship, dissemination of scientific knowledge, and promotion of biological research" (from the Constitution of the National organization.).

The members of Kappa Gamma chapter participate in a wide-variety of activities: research; sponsoring presentations of students, faculty and outside speakers; undertaking various chapter projects for the university and community; going on fieldtrips; participating in fund-raising for the chapter; and socializing.

Members regularly attend and give presentations at regional meetings of the national organization and at Georgia Academy of Science Annual Meetings. Members of Kappa Gamma have volunteered in the Regional Science and Engineering Fair, the State Science Olympiad, and the Regional Science Quiz Bowl nearly every year as well.
