A Welcome from your Undergraduate Microbiology Club


OSU Microbiology Club serves as a way for undergraduate students interested in microbiology to network, navigate resources, learn from professionals, help each other, and have fun. We host events that allow for fellow undergraduate students to meet, discuss challenges, network with faculty members, graduate students, and members of the community. We aim to help each member to build professional as well as personal networks, which is essential for future success. This may include helping with classwork or contacting a professor/speaker for more information. Our Facebook group allows a forum for members to post news related to science or other pertinent information so that our members can stay informed. We also aim to inform students about resources and opportunities available to them for scholarships, fellowships, internships, study programs, and employment. 

Follow us on Campus Link for updates and more!
