To accomplish these tasks, we have developed the BIOE-FYS which you will hopefully find enjoyable and informative. Each of you is encouraged to ask questions about Bioengineering and Penn State. You are also encouraged to help evaluate which parts of the First-Year Seminar are helpful, what might be missing, and which parts should be revised. The success of this course will depend on your participation and feedback, so please do not be shy!
