Bio Ambassadors

Image Picker for Section 0

Our student BioAmbassadors are volunteer representatives of the Department of Biological Sciences. They bring the student perspective to admission events and other Department gatherings and gain personal and professional growth through the variety of activities they participate in throughout the year.

Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year are due to Melanie Stille by September 30, 2020.

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