Biology Undergraduate Society (BUGS) is a student organization at the University of New Mexico. Our goal is to involve STEM students from all disciplines with biology focused volunteer work, UNM and community events, as well as resources for future biologists and other STEM students as they tackle their undergraduate years.  


We are involved in UNM’s Fall Frenzy, the Albuquerque Biopark’s Zoo “Boo”, and most importantly, Wolf Fest.

Wolf Fest is our biggest event of the year. We host live domesticated wolves on campus in an effort to promote conservation of UNM’s beloved mascot.

BUGS is happy to uphold a partnership with KAPLAN test prep, a resource for undergraduate students who hope to eventually take the GRE or MCAT for their graduate school applications. Depending on the annual terms of our partnership, BUGS members have the opportunity to use discounts and course scholarships toward KAPLAN products. Through spreading the word about KAPLAN through hosting events and talks or distributing information at our table events, we can make sure all STEM students are aware of graduate school testing requirements and study resources.
