About our events

HIKE: The Biology Club goes across the island to find exciting hikes. It is a great we to experience nature, great scenery, and botanical life. Some previous hikes have included Manoa Falls, Maunawilli Falls, Koko Head, Diamond Head, Manoa Trails, Tantalus, and St. Louis. 

SNORKEL: To properly experience Marine Life, one must dive in head first.  We explore the islands many beaches and snorkeling sites.  The marine life in Hawaii is the best in the world.  The Biology Club makes an effort to give members opportunity to properly experience all Hawaii's oceans have to offer.  Previous dives include Electric Beach, Hanauma Bay, Chinaman's Hat adventures, and reef walks.  

SOCIALS: In the past we have done socials with such organizations as the Pre-Medical Association, Pre-Pharmacy Association, and the Chemistry Club.  We compete in friendly tournaments, or just barbeque by the beach.  The Biology Club also holds it's own socials including Zoo Scavenger Hunts, and most notably the Annual Biology Club Camping Event during Spring Break.  

COMMUNITY SERVICE & SUPPORT: The Biology Club is extremely active in the community, participating in a diverse and exciting array of projects.  We try make our projects relevent to the field of biology, and offer our members opportunities they would get no where else.   Some previous projects include: Relay for Life, Great Aloha Run, Waimea Audubon Conservation Project, Kaupa Adopt a Stream Project, and various beach clean-ups and fundraisers.  

EDUCATION: The Biology Club, as an academic organization, is committed to the academic advancement of its membership. We offer mentorship opportunities to our members, help planning classes, and even book-buy-back programs. The Biology Club also has many CPR instructors, and has in the past certified many students in CPR and First AID for the Professional Rescuer (the same level as policemen, or firefighters). 

FUNDRAISERS: The Biology Club is an independent organization, and as such, does not recieve university funding without an application process to ASUH or SAPFB. To fund events and meetings, the club usually holds one to two fundraisers a semester.
