Beta Beta Beta, also known as the Tri-Beta's, is a national biological honorary fraternity that was formally established on campus as the Delta Iota chapter in May 1934. The honor society is for students of the biological sciences and promotes the dissemination of scientific proof and encourages investigation in the natural world. The group took many field trips to natural settings, created their own science magazine, and has hosted many programs since its founding. The group was inactive from 1954 to 1955 until it was reactivated in 1956, and continues to the present day at UNI.
