Tri-Beta (Beta Beta Beta), the Biology Honor Society is an honors society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research.

Since its founding in 1922, more than 200,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 670 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Biennial national conventions of student and faculty members began in that year and in 1930 the society journal, BIOS, began publication of student research, articles of interest to biologists, and society news.

At Trinity, it has existed for years and includes students who have completed three biology classes by the time of induction while maintaining a 3.0 GPA in biology classes.
