Brigham Young University is full of clubs, programs, and service opportunities that help students get involved with their major, peers, and community. As the Fall 2016 semester approaches, individuals in the Neuroscience Major have the opportunity to join the Neuroscience Club, or NeuroClub for short. With meetings every Tuesday and a group of officers and professors that want to make your experience at BYU the best it can be, there’s no better place for Neuroscience majors to go to find opportunities for service, leadership, and support!
Here’s everything you need to know about the Neuroscience Club:
How it Helps You
The NeuroClub’s purpose as described by the President Kaitlyn Williams is, “to enhance and broaden neuroscience student’s awareness of practices and applications in the neuroscience field while providing opportunities for service, leadership, and support in their education.” The club focuses on helping students answer: “Where can I go? What can I do? And why is it important?” in regards to their educational and career pursuits.
What it Does
For Fall of 2016, the NeuroClub has big plans for its members! With a focus on careers, each month the club will be hosting 3 activities in which students can learn more about where they can go with a neuroscience degree. These activities include:
- Guest speakers with a neuroscience background that have chosen various career paths
- Casual dinner meetings with professors to get to know them as well as have the opportunity to ask them questions
- Service and Volunteering
- And of course games and other fun activities to build lasting friendships!
Where to Find out More
To kick off the fun for Fall 2016, check out the club’s opening social on Thursday, September 1 from 12-2pm in the south quad of the SWKT! There will be food, desserts, games with prizes, and so much more. Come out to meet the club officers, find out about upcoming activities, and be there for the big reveal of the club’s NEW t-shirt design! Watch out for NeuroClub officers visiting your classrooms this week and don’t forget to vote! And there’s even more fun planned in 2017 with Brain Week in March.
