Biology students are active on campus through clubs and programs. The seminar series brings notable guests to campus, while the Biology Club's off-campus trips foster experiential learning. The department also recognizes its stellar students through awards and scholarships.
One of the major activities of the biology department is the Monday afternoon seminar series, during which students, faculty, and scientists from both local and geographically distant institutions present the results of their research activities.
All seminars take place on Mondays at 4 p.m. in CLS 149, unless otherwise noted.
The Biology Club is a student organization open to all students with an interest in biology. This very active organization coordinates field trips, service activities, and social events.
This award is based upon academic achievement, potential for research in biology or the biomedical sciences, and overall contributions made to the University and department of biology.
This award, made in honor of professor Harold Murray, is presented annually to the senior pre-med student who has achieved the highest academic record after completing a minimum of 100 hours of course work.
These scholarships were established by an endowment created in honor of professor Jacob Uhrich, a former biology faculty member. The scholarship fund provides financial assistance to "worthy students who are majoring in biology."

Student grants will be available to select academically talented students with financial need who plan to major in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics. These $5,000 annual awards are designed to replace student loans and are renewable for up to four years.
