Northwest Campus

Northwest STEM Club

Northwest STEM Club is located on Spring Branch Campus. The goal is to promote student engagement, stimulate and provide enrichment opportunities for students to apply knowledge outside of the classroom, give students the opportunities to further and perhaps deeper exploration of STEM disciplines as a field of study or career option. In the past, the club has organized seminars, biotechnology workshops and research symposia. The club email is: HCCS.STEM@gmail.com

Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta) Biological Honors Club

blepein basin biou “to see the foundation of life”

Beta Beta Beta (Tri Beta) is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study. The three major objectives of the Society are (1) to promote scholarship in the biological sciences, (2) to promote the dissemination of biological knowledge, and (3) to encourage research. The Sigma-Chi chapter of Beta Beta Beta also dedicates itself and its members to participate in activities which benefit the community.

Sigma-Chi strives to offer opportunities to expand the knowledge of biology in the HCC student population as well as the community at large. Tri-Beta seeks to offer extra biological hands on activities for its members, community service opportunities that are geared toward the dissemination of biological knowledge, and to create a community for the exchange of biological ideas.

As a national honor society, Tri-Beta offers students the prestige of acknowledgement for the hard work they put into their biological studies. Membership in this society will give the student extra recognition of the quality of dedication to the study of the biological sciences that will be acknowledged by universities.

For joining the club, please contact the faculty advisor.

American Chemical Society Chapter

The Council of the American Chemical Society (ACS) recognized the formation of HCC NW Chapter of Student Affiliates in 2005. The group was developed for undergraduate students who are interested in learning more about the chemical sciences. The student members have the opportunity to build organizational, leadership and professional skills with the assistance of a faculty mentor. The students also have a chance to explore Chemical and Engineering News (CEN) online and CEN-Chemjobs.org. The ACS also publishes an annual directory of experience opportunities that lists co-ops, internships, and summer work opportunities. The members enjoy the various social events, field trips, and receive the ever so popular blanket as a welcome gift!
