Science Departmental Clubs

BIOLOGY

      PHAT is a club for students interested in professional careers in human healthcare. Members have many opportunities to network and socialize with like-minded peers, to become involved in community service and volunteerism activities, to meet and talk with alumni that are practicing healthcare professionals or students in health professions graduate programs, and to develop and practice leadership skills.

GEOGRAPHY/GEOLOGY

        • Whitewater Geography Association (WGA)  
          WGA is a student run campus organization for Geography and other Earth Science enthusiasts that promotes learning and camaraderie through fun events and fundraising opportunities. We work alongside the other Geo-science clubs (UW-W WeatherHawks and the Geological Society of Whitewater) to conduct and encourage community outreach, departmental involvement, and student networking.

        • UW-Whitewater Weatherhawks
          The UW-W WeatherHawks is a student ran organization that promotes learning and builds a network of weather and climate enthusiast. While the primary focus of those activities is on campus the group also promotes the activities throughout the Whitewater community through volunteer activities, guest lectures, and providing weather and climate related information through various social media outlets.
        • Geological Society of Whitewater (GSW)  
          The Geological Society is for students who have an interest in geology, and everyone is welcome. We have meetings and field trips during the academic year and also plan summer trips through email. These trips allow students to apply what they have learned in the classroom along with building camaraderie with students and professors. Some of our trips include going to Devil's Lake to learn about rock formations or museums/quarries to learn about/find fossils.

PHYSICS

    • Society of Physics Students
      The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater SPS (Society of Physics Students) chapter meets during the academic year to plan department and university physics events, as well as doing school outreach events.  Students also frequently work on group projects like creating videos of physics demonstration or building equipment to test out.
