The Microbiology Club helps to inform students about the microbiology major and provides a community forum for students to learn about career opportunities and the latest news in microbiology.
The club regularly sponsors scientific seminars, "Careers in Science" forums, participates in AU outreach activities, Trivia Contests, and organizes field trip to various microbiology-related locales such as the CDC, zoos, aquaria, and businesses that require a knowledge of microbiology.
There are currently over 500 members of the club.
