Why join Beta Psi Omega?
Being a member of Beta Psi Omega means being surrounded by a community of like-minded, driven individuals that each bring something new to the table. Within the organization, members find professional development resources, opportunities to network and expand social connections, and ways to give back to the community through meaningful service. From their brothers, members draw support, inspiration, and advice.
In efforts to embody our five core values, members of Beta Psi Omega have conducted undergraduate research in labs, have found internships at hospitals, are pursuing MD or MA degrees at BU, have volunteered at organizations such as Community Servings, Cradles to Crayons, Room to Grow, or medical centers in the Greater Boston Area.
To be a brother of Beta Psi Omega is to pursue any professional goals, to receive support from an entire community, and finding a common identity among a diverse group of people - all while building lifelong friendships.
