The Aggie Forensic and Investigative Sciences Organization was created shortly after in January of 2009. AFIS is a student-run organization and is open to both graduates and undergraduates of Texas A&M University, affiliated with any major.
The purpose of this organization is to foster the interests of the graduate students of the Department of Entomology, promote and support academic and social activities of interest to graduate students, and serve as liaison between the faculty and staff of the Department of Entomology and other related organizations, and the graduate students.
Since 1937, the mission of the UESO is to further the knowledge of matters concerning entomology, bridge the gap between faculty, undergraduate students and graduate students, and for the general good fellowship of its members.
UESO is a school-year organization open to all Texas A&M undergraduates who are interested in entomology, regardless of their major. Socials are every first Thursday and meetings are every first and third Thursday. Other events include Chili Cook-off, Big Event, camping, collecting, local outreach, professional meetings and Replant.
Even though the department is small, with about 94 majors and 50 minors and double majors, getting to know everyone is still difficult. UESO helps to bring students with similar interests together through meetings, socials, and events. You have the opportunity to meet many people and make lasting friendships. UESO also works very closely with our advisors and faculty within the department to bridge the gap between professors and students; making your classroom experiences more fun and memorable. Anyone is welcome to join, being an entomology major is not a requirement!
