As you plan to transfer to your 4-year school, do you ever wonder “How can I be sure I’m prepared for the next step?  How can I set myself up to excel after I transfer?” 

Our Advanced Biology Seminars may be the answer.

Students who are selected to participate will meet Fridays for one hour (at 10am or noon) to discuss biological concepts from a research science point of view.
