The Biology Majors Union is a Duke Student Government (DSG) sponsored, student-run organization that caters to the needs of biology majors, pre-majors with an interest in biology, and acts as an intermediary between the Biology Department and the students.
Events run by the group in the past include BUGS (Biology Undergraduate Seminars) with top faculty specifically invited to talk to undergrads, lunches with faculty members, student/faculty barbecues, the annual Schmidt-Nielsen Memorial lecture, and a how-to-get-involved-in-research seminar with students and faculty giving advice and answering questions.
The group's most recent executive board graduated without a succession plan and is in need of leadership. If you are interested in reviving the organization, please reach out to DSG and/or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
BMU Email Listserve
The Biology Majors Union owns an email listserv open to students at Duke with an interest in Biology. The list is used by the Biology Majors Union to spread the word about their events and activities. The Undergraduate Studies Office also uses the list to notify students about job opportunities, courses of interest, seminars, summer research programs, etc.
