Internal Affairs

We strive to build personal relationships between our members by scheduling social events where students of all levels can relax and get to know each other. Our upperclassmen have the potential to serve as sources of advice for the underclassmen in progressing through the BME department at UF.

Our internal affairs programming includes intramural sports, trivia nights, eboard office hours, BME major application prep sessions, Lake Wauburg socials, bowling socials, movie nights, and more!

Director of Internal Affairs: Sean Te (ste@ufl.edu)
