Biographical / Historical

The RIT Biology Club was formed in the fall of 1968 for undergraduate biology majors at the Rochester Institute of Technology for individuals with a strong interest in the fields of scientific biology. Its stated purpose was:
  • To promote a deeper interest in biology among the students
  • To bring these students together and allow them the opportunity to exchange ideas
  • To make the students aware of the areas of biological importance, whether educational, industrial, or geographical
  • To provide the student members with an organization that will aid them in pursuing their work in biology while at RIT.
The group officially became a school organization in the winter of 1968-1969. During its first year the club organized a series of seminars on biological subjects, prepared a pamphlet for the biology department, and compiled a group of newsletters with articles on "events of biological importance."
