In addition to the EvoS minor, the EvoS Club is a student-founded and student-run club that is as inclusive as it is fun. Students from various majors in Arts & Sciences bring diverse perspectives to student-led discussions and projects on campus.  The purpose of the club is to engage in evolution-oriented activities outside the classroom, including field trips, exclusive lunch meetings with the visiting ALLELE speakers, and outreach on campus and in the community. EvoS Club membership is not exclusive to EvoS minors; we welcome all interested undergraduate and graduate students to join!
