PNC has it own chapter (Xi Rho) of the national biological honors society Tri-Beta. Tri-Beta is only open to students pursing a degree in biology. Our goal is to support undergraduate research by matching students with professors, assisting with grant writing, and organizing trips to regional and national conferences. Lifetime Regular membership ($60) is offered to students who have completed at least one semester in the sophomore year of a four year bachelors seeking program and has a B average. For example, a student who has taken Cell Biology and Organic Chemistry 1 while maintaining a B average would qualify. Associate membership ($10) is open to all biology students but has restricted voting rights in the club. A copy of the national constitution may be found at tri-beta.org.
