YEEBUG is the Undergraduate Group for Yale’s Ecology and Evolutionary Biology majors!

The group organizes social events for declared majors, leads field trips, organizes topical panels and dinners with professors, and represents the group at bazaars and academics fairs.  Students in the major hail from diverse backgrounds and are interested in a wide array of topics: they range from viral evolution to primate psychology, anthropology to conservation policy, fish phylogenetics to microbial ecology, agricultural entomology to biogeography and landscape ecology. One new event last year was a bi-monthly lunch for students to gather casually to share summer research projects and connect across these broad interest areas.  Prospective majors are welcome at all events!

To get involved or to be added to the listserv, please email one of the current YEEBUG Board Members: President ‘23 , Vice President ‘23,  Events Manager ‘23, or Advisor ’23. Positions are still open in 2022-2023 for Treasurer, Underclass Liason, and Social Media/Newsletter Manager. Contact us today if you’d like to join!
