Snodgrass and Wigglesworth Undergraduate Entomology Club

Many undergraduate students interested in insects are members of the club Snodgrass & Wigglesworth, named for two of the foremost entomologists of the 20th century. American Robert Snodgrass was a morphologist who worked at the Smithsonian Institution for decades and Sir Vincent Wigglesworth was a Brit who many consider the father of modern insect physiology.

Club members are called SnodWiggs, for short. Most club members are majoring in entomology, but there are many active members who are majoring in another subject, but who also share a passion for insects. The SnodWiggs meet weekly during the school year and punctuate their year with bake sales, guest speakers, camping trips, barbeques, and other fun events.
