Welcome to BioSoc - Exeter's Biology Society! We encourage anyone and everyone to join whether your interests lie in the teeny tiny merozoites of cryptosporidium or you just really like to watch big fluffy animals in their natural habitat!
We have planned so many exciting things for this academic term, we promise there will be something for you! This includes a wide range of academic talks, biology-based trips and experiences, and themed socials every month which is a fantastic way to meet people with similar interests. And don't panic, we have many COVID-19 safe socials and events planned too. We promise you will get the true BioSoc experience, even during these difficult times.
*NEW TO 2020/21*
This year, we plan to make mental health a big priority. This means planning frequent events which involve walks, coffee meet-ups, trips to Exmouth as well as BioSoc Yoga and mindfulness sessions.
We also plan to introduce BioSoc Families - This means you will be assigned into small families across all year groups to ensure you get to meet as many new people as possible! They will also be a great support for your academic learning throughout your degree.
And don’t go thinking us scientists can’t get our footy boots on - we have a 6 a side and 11 a side mens football team captained by Willis Lawrence as well as a mixed netball team, both of which play regular matches at weekends. We welcome all standards of of play and it's great fun - links to sign up for sports can be seen below;
