Transcript Beta Beta Beta members listen intently during the Spring '87 initiation at Las Almedas. As '86 and '87 officers look on adviser Dr. Peter Jurtshuk congratulates a new initiate. Extending Knowledge Beta Beta Beta is a society for students, especially undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending the boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Since 1922, more than 100,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, establishing more than 320 chapters to encourage the close professional and personal relationships on which science thrives. The society is organized into national, regional and district levels, with annual conventions at the latter two levels. The national constitution provides a framework for chapter activities, chapter needs and school philosophy. The local chapter invited professional and nonprofessional speakers to provide them with information on their subject matter. They toured places of interest such as Texas Medical Center and research laboratories of graduate schools. In participating in such activities, the members were able to meet other students with similar interests. President Munira Halim said, "This provides them with knowledge and tips in a practical, informal way." Membership had other benefits other than interpersonal relationships. These ranged from group discount tickets to the Renaissance Festival to subscription to the Biology Journal Bios. The most practical privileges were information and connections to job opportunties. "Our members get an opportunity to meet other students with similar interests ... this provides them with knowledge and tips in a friendly, informal way."
