Northeastern University’s (MA) Bee Society – a club dedicated to beekeeping and pollinator advocacy – installed the first student-run beehive on campus this spring. Student members of the club rehoused bees shipped from Georgia into the club’s hive at the campus clock tower. The Bee Society will oversee the hive’s health and progress, likely collecting honey at the end of summer or beginning of fall. 

Student members of the Bee Society provided the new bees with plenty of sugar water to help them settle in and thrive. Eventually, reported The Huntington News, the bees will be able to collect nectar and exist on their own.

The student-run hive at Northeastern joins those the University Arboretum had installed last summer.
