Phi Sigma Biological Sciences Honor Society


We are the Beta Epsilon Chapter of Northern Illinois University!

Membership in Phi Sigma is not merely for recognition of academic excellence and achievement; it also serves to further develop interests, knowledge, and opportunities in biological sciences. Whether you intend to further your academic career, put your experience to immediate use in industry or government, or explore a new career direction, Phi Sigma will give you an opportunity to use your knowledge in ways that classroom experience alone cannot.

Phi Sigma is a cross-section of undergraduate and graduate students and professional people with unique interests and experience in biology. As such, they can offer a wealth of perspectives that can assist you in your career development.

We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity for social, educational, and professional advancement!

The Phi Sigma Society is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, the American Institute of Biological Sciences, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
