Important Information for Current Undergrads

Thank you for choosing EEB as your biology concentration!  Our department has made efforts to increase undergraduate involvement in departmental affairs and research. Here are a few resources you may wish to take advantage of:

  1. You can receive credit for attending weekly EEB seminars (EEB 490).
  2. With instructor permission, you can receive credit for attending lab meetings and discussion groups (EEB 504 and above).
  3. EEB has a Grads Mentoring Undergrads Program, which allows you to meet with graduate students who share your interests in order to learn more about EEB careers and research opportunities.  Click here to apply (Google Form), or email for more information.
  4. Natural History Teaching Collection Curation allows undergraduates to acquire a general background of natural history museum work including specimen preparation, ethics, protocols, and database construction. Please contact Jessica Welch with any questions.
  5. The Naturalist Club is a social group that coordinates camping and hiking trips, discusses interests in nature, and helps researchers with data collection.  For more information, please visit their organization page.
  6. There is an EEB Honors Option, which requires students to complete their own independent research project.
  7. There is an EEB Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium held in April, and all EEB majors or undergraduates working in EEB labs are invited to present a poster illustrating independent research, a intensive class project, or their work as an assistant.
