The Biochemistry Student Association is a student run organization that aims to enhance the experience of the biochemistry undergraduate student and promote social and academic growth. Some of the ways in which that is accomplished is through one-on-one conversations with some of the top researchers on campus, social events like hikes and game nights, and community service projects. The BCSA is one way in which students can connect on a deeper level to the STEM community on campus and engage with their coursework in a more fun and personalized way. The BCSA is geared towards members of the Biochemistry Major but is open to all students who wish to participate.
