Starting January 1st 2014, all undergraduate biology students should see Professional Advisor, Diana Trgovcich-Zacok, for advising. If you have any questions regarding career choices, course information or research, you are welcome to contact biology faculty members.
Biology club students were given a tour of the teaching and research labs used by the Dept. Biological Sciences. Laboratory Technicians Diana Young and Jessica Orr showed students critical pieces of equipment including the autoclaves, PC machines, -80 freezers and explained their use and quality control procedures. Prof. Curtis Creighton gave students a tour of research lab 217/219 and spoke about his current research projects. Students also had the opportunity to view the Department’s collection of human brains used in the Anatomy and Physiology and Neurobiology courses (seen below). Students interested in future tours are encouraged to visit and follow the Biology Club Facebook page for more information about future workshop dates and times.
If you are planning on graduating in the Fall-2013 semester you MUST submit a “fully approved” (all signatures required before the Graduate School approval) Plan of Study by August 16th. Below is an email from the Graduate School regarding the new approval process deadlines.
Looking for a career with a land management agency? Want some experience working with the public, planning events, helping with the management of a large volunteer program? Looking for some experience in the civic engagement world? Got some skills with a camera and social media? After participating in our summer seasonal training, you will become our expert on social media and help find new ways to engage the public in America’s Great Outdoors. As an Intern at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore you will help develop a strategy to find volunteers for projects that need to be done and you will work with staff and volunteers to help them stay informed. You will be asked to manage a data base of information, and assist in the publication of the volunteer newsletter. Your biggest and most rewarding project for the summer is to plan and implement the annual appreciation event for about 300 people.
Several of our past interns have used the skills developed in this position to help them find jobs in government and private sector settings.
