Part of being a member of the department (and the scientific community) is giving back in terms of service, to enhance the quality of the department, OSU, and the community at large. Some service activities available to students include:

  1. hosting of the annual BB departmental picnic at the beginning of each school year (typically organized by second year students);
  2. hosting of graduate student-invited seminar speakers;
  3. hosting and recruiting of visiting prospective graduate students;
  4. organizing and running various journal clubs;
  5. selecting and organizing the visit of the annual Tsoo King Lecturer.
