The application deadline to attend the Spring 2016 program is Monday, October 19, at 4:00p.m.

The application requires signatures from the student, a parent/guardian, and their faculty adviser. Also required is a recommendation from the faculty member who will serve as the student's faculty sponsor for their internship experience(s) or independent study, fieldwork, or research opportunity. H&S students are required to complete at least 3 credits of internship or independent study while in NYC.

The Bio Club is putting together some teams for BIG PINK VOLLEYBALL.


A campus wide volleyball tournament except the volleyball is 4 ft in diameter. So it doesn't matter if you think you are bad at one can be that good with a 4ft ball. So play anyway! All proceedings go to the national breast cancer foundation.


Email Jaime Lisack by September 11th. You have two options.1) Tell her what lab you are in and who in your lab is planning on participating, note that it does not matter if you do not have enough players when you send this to her OR 2) If you are not in a lab send her the email and she will put teams together based on labs with less people or amount of interest.


The tournament is noon, Saturday October 3rd. However, there is a captains meeting (at least one per team) September 30th at 6pm in Hill
It would be awesome if a lot of people participated and showed our unity as the biology department and our support for breast cancer research and awareness! It would be an awesome way to make some new friends and have fun!
