Greetings Biology students!

It is that time of year when we get to recognize all of the hard work of our graduates. We are so proud of you and look forward to helping you celebrate. I know that it super important to many of you and your families to walk across the stage. Although we cannot do that yet, we hope to have a super charged in person ceremony next spring with all graduates from 2020 and 2021.
