Wilkes University inducted 13 students as full members into the Theta Delta Chapter of the Beta Beta Beta national biological honor society at an induction ceremony held during the fall 2018 semester. An additional nine students were inducted as associate members.
Full members are juniors or seniors who have completed at least 16 credits in biology with at least a 3.25 grade-point average and a 3.0 overall GPA. Associate members are sophomores and juniors who have completed fewer than 16 biology credits with at least a 3.25 grade-point average and a 3.0 overall GPA.
Beta Beta Beta was founded in 1922 at Oklahoma City University by Dr. Frank G. Brooks and his students. The idea of an honor society and professional society for biology students spread and by 1925 the society became a national organization. The Theta Delta Chapter was installed at Wilkes in 2001.
