Bio Ambassadors

Image Picker for Section 0

The Department of Biological Sciences instituted a new program during the 2015-2016 academic year called Bio Ambassadors.  This program recruits volunteer representatives who are in their Freshman, Sophomore or Junior year in the Department of Biological Sciences.  Bio Ambassadors are representatives for the department who provide tours to prospective students and families, attend special events, and promote the various programs in the department.  In return for their work, students who participate as Bio Ambassadors will enhance themselves both personally and professionally through the activities they participate in throughout the year.

Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are due to Melanie Stille, 118 Wolf Hall by September 20, 2019.

For more information on becoming a Bio Ambassador, e-mail Melanie Stille.

jlittjlitt.jpgLittman, JackieSpring 2020Biology (Biochemistry Minor)Columbia, Maryland<p>​I aspire to one day be working in public health, researching diseases and epidemics that affect our world. I want to be able to understand more about them, how they spread, and preventative measures that can be taken to prevent outbreaks.</p><p>​My favorite experience so far has been creating our own biofuels in Integrated Biology and Chemistry. We used a natural resource, grass, to create usable fuel that we were able to put into a propeller engine and witness it being used as an actual fuel source.</p><p>​I really enjoy theatre and music. I sing and play several instruments, and spend most of my free time performing in some capacity.</p><p>​Captain of the UD Color Guard in the UD Marching Band, Member of Harrington Theatre Arts Company (HTAC), Member of Delazure (UD's Indoor Color Guard), Chemistry Workshop Leader</p>jlitt

I really felt that I learned a lot from him and was able to have fun while doing it. I have also really enjoyed getting to know the Biology department advisor, Ms. Ramona Wilson. She has helped me choose and get into classes and has also made me feel much more comfortable and prepared for the medical school application process.</p><p>​Spend time with my family, hang out with my friends, listen to music, Netflix, volunteer and engage in the community, eat ice cream</p><p>​Phi Delta Epsilon Pre-Med Fraternity, University of Delaware Alternative Breaks</p>jmuto

I also hope to do the Disney College Program between undergrad and med school.</p><p>​In my freshman year, we made biofuels in the chemistry lab and saw how we could create biofuels from substances of our choosing. We were able to see how, even as freshman, what we were learning actually mattered to the real world.</p><p>​I love to play the piano, do anything musical theatre related, studio dance, go skiing, scuba dive, frequent the local Chick Fil A, cuddle my dogs, and do literally anything with my family and friends. I also go to Walt Disney World whenever possible.</p><p>​Harrington Theatre Arts Company, 1743 Welcome Days Welcome Ambassador Captain, ISE Lab Tutoring Center tutor, dance minor outreach</p>gpolet
