The Bio Society was founded to provide Providence College students (both science and non-science majors!) interested in biology the opportunity to explore all areas of the subject. Club meetings provide opportunities for students to meet with their peers as well as their professors in a casual setting. Past activities include guest lectures, student-faculty socials, workshops with inner-city schools, and biology-related field trips (e.g., Boston Museum of Science, beach clean ups).

The club is not exclusive to the Biology Department and is open to any student with a general interest in biology.Follow @pcbiosociety on Instagram for meeting topics, event updates, and more! See above for examples of events the Bio Society has hosted.
ECOPC’s mission is to educate the Providence College community about topics related to environmentalism and sustainability. We host events and programs to help students engage with these topics so they can enact environmental change in their own lives and spread their knowledge to those around them. Our goal is to educate our peers about environmental issues observed on campus and advocate for solutions to these problems. ECOPC also hosts farmers market trips, clean-ups, succulent planting events, sustainability challenges, and our annual Earth Day Celebration.
Co-Presidents: Kaelin Ferland (’23), Maeve McCarthy (’23)
