Virtually all fields of biology and environmental sciences are available. Students who have recently returned from international science experiences will share their insights and photographs, and answer questions. Information will be available on programs in locations ranging from Latin America to Africa to Australia to Europe. For more information contact Dr. Janice Edgerly-Rooks [email protected] . Paperwork for Graduating Seniors For students who plan to graduate in June, pre-graduation evaluations and graduation petitions are due to the Student Records Office by Feb. 24. Blank forms can be picked up in the Biology Office, or in Student Records. If you haven’t done it already, please make an appointment with your advisor for the pre-grad evaluation. Completed forms can be turned in to the Biology Office for the Chair’s signature. You must also complete the Biology Department exit survey and send it in by email to Cena Hoban [email protected] Bio 100 - Hot Topics Spring 2006 The focus of the spring quarter edition of the Biology Department’s Hot Topics seminar course will be Global Health , as broadly interpreted by the Biology faculty. Faculty presentations and discussion will focus on issues related to human and/or environmental health around the world, including (for example) infectious diseases in the developing world, environmental toxins, the impact of climate change on ecosystems, and many other topics. The course will meet from 4:45-6:00 pm on Mondays in Alumni Science 120. The SCU community (students, faculty, and staff) are invited to all presentations. Biology students who plan to participate throughout the quarter should register for Bio 100, a 2 unit upper division course that can be taken multiple times. (Note – Bio 100 does NOT count as one of the seven upper division Biology courses required for the Biology major, but it does count toward the 60 upper division units required for a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences.)
