Biology majors enroll in Senior Thesis Research to satisfy their senior capstone requirement for the major. This year-long course requires students to work on independent research projects under the guidance of their mentors. It culminates in both a scientific paper and a 15-minute research talk presented in the Symposium's first session.
Guided Research & Seminar Poster Presentations

Biology majors enroll in Guided Research & Seminar to satisfy two of three required upper-level biology labs for the major. This year-long course requires students to work on independent research projects under the guidance of their mentors. It culminates in both a scientific paper and the poster presented in the Symposium's second session.
Coffee Hour & Majors' Toast
This spring, students, faculty, and staff gathered on the Diana Center Green Roof, better known as the Sibyl-Levy Golden Ecological Learning Center, to toast the newly declared sophomore majors and our graduating seniors.
Annual Honey Extraction
