Clubs and Organizations, Biochemistry
There are multiple opportunities for biochemistry majors to explore their love of the sciences outside the classroom.
Participation in these organizations can sometimes lead to scholarships or even grants to conduct research. The groups also provide an outlet for informal learning opportunities with like-minded individuals and can lead to long-lasting friendships and mentorships.
Below are a few clubs and organizations popular with biochemistry majors at Widener.
Members of the Biochemistry Club are biochemistry, biology, chemistry, and engineering majors who want to explore the application of science in everyday life. Activities include lunchtime talks from research scientists with question and answer sessions, science-themed movie nights followed by interactive discussions with faculty, and field trips to local science-related venues such as the Franklin Institute and Mutter Museum.
Widener has pride in going green. The Environmental Club is open to all students at the university and holds multiple events throughout the year to bring awareness to protecting the environment. Some projects include a “Save the Seas Night” and relabeling the storm drains around campus to deter littering.
The Chemistry Club is made up of undergraduates who enjoy science and want to share their passion with others. The club engages in fun and exciting science activities with area schoolchildren and teachers to help spark a love of science among today’s youth. One of those activities is the Chem Club Haunted Walk. Members also recently put their minds together to win the 2014 Chemistry Wars, a science competition co-hosted by Temple University and the University of the Sciences.
