The Acadia Biology Society is a student-run organization open to all Biology students at Acadia. The Biology Society focuses on academic and social issues that interest the students within the Biology department. In addition, the Society acts as a liaison between the faculty and the students of the department, with a representative present at each faculty meeting, ready to be a voice for Biology students when appropriate.
The Bio Buds program is available to all Biology majors who wish to participate. Bio Buds is a mentoring program at Acadia facilitating the pairing of a 1st or 2nd year student with a 3rd or 4th year student. This program is meant to act as a resource for students who are early in their degree at Acadia, to help them get the most out of their degree at Acadia. Bio Buds will help one other with managing courses (preparing for mid-terms/finals, course selection, etc.) as well as making them feel a part of the Acadia community.
The Biology Society also hosts various events, allowing students to meet and socialize with other Biology majors at Acadia. Some of these events include the Biology Banquet, Mud Sliding, Bio Assassins, Biology vs. Engineering hockey game and the list goes on! The Society also sells and distributes Biology clothing for students to purchase.
