The purpose of the Pi Rho chapter of Beta Beta Beta at Luther College is to recognize students for academic excellence and service in the fields of biology and biological research. 

Criteria for Membership

Membership in Beta Beta Beta is open to biology majors and biology minors who have completed at least 12 credits of biology (from Bio 151, 152 and courses above 200) and have earned a cumulative biology course GPA of 3.5 or better. Students fulfilling these criteria (determined by the college registrar) will be contacted in early March (assuming they’ve declared biology as their major or minor) and invited to join the Pi Rho chapter of Beta Beta Beta as a regular member.
