Get Involved

Being in college is about more than just classroom learning. It's important to spread your wings in other ways: gain enrichment, network with your peers, and have some fun too.
As an undergraduate student, we have options for you.

Student Organizations

The Undergraduate Biochemistry Club meets regularly to discuss training and coursework in Biochemistry.  It is also a great way to meet other students and to engage in peer mentoring.  Many students also participate in the NC State Student Chapter of the ASBMB, allowing you to connect at the national level.

Advising Resources

Our faculty considers advising students one of its most important responsibilities. Advisers will assist you in the selection of appropriate courses and let you know about relevant career opportunities. The department specializes in advising students interested in careers in science, medicine, dentistry, optometry, veterinary medicine or pharmacy.
