Are you interested in becoming a forensic scientist? Maybe a crime scene investigator? Perhaps working in a lab to create various pharmaceuticals or new biofuels? If you're thinking "yes," then Experience the Lab: Forensic Science, Microbiology & Biochemistry is the perfect Learning Community for you!
This community is designed to support students from any major who are interested in the molecular life sciences, such as microbiology, biochemistry, and forensic science – just to name a few! By joining, you'll be provided opportunities to connect with faculty, staff, and other students with similar interests to build a great support system for you. You'll also be able to gain insight into potential careers related to your passion and interests in the molecular sciences.
The community lives in Abel Hall to allow that support system to be built into your "home away from home," and you'll take introductory science courses together to ensure you always have someone to study with and learn alongside. Outside the classroom and your residence hall, you'll participate in a wide variety of events to showcase different fields and meet professionals. These events could include, visits to local companies, join in hands-on lab training, participate in a research symposium with other undergraduate researchers, graduate students, and faculty, and enjoy other social activities.
