Ateneo Biological Organization - eXplore eXperience eXcel
BOx, the home organization of the Biology department, initially aimed
to provide its members with a venue to explore and experience various
sub-disciplines of biology and to excel in their chosen endeavors. Now
on its fourth year of accreditation, BOx has gone beyond academic- and
research-oriented formation to become one of the most essential and
life-changing experiences that Bio/LfSci majors could have, allowing BOx to
become a family that knows that the best way to study life is to live it.

coastal areas in which BOx members help clean-up particular coastal
