Biology Students Association

The Biology Students Association (BSA) seeks to connect students with a common interest in biological sciences by providing a forum for discussion, bridging the gap between textbook knowledge and real-world science, providing programs to help students involved in research labs at Northwestern, and engaging professors through seminars and mentorship.

BSA hosts social and academic events throughout the academic year, funded by the Undegraduate Major in Biological Sciences. Free food will be served at the majority of the events.

Events from the past include:

-Research seminar given by NU professors
