The Biology Intensive Orientation Session (BIOS) is a rigorous academic program designed to enhance student success in life science majors. The program will run in late August, 2014, just before the fall semester begins (exact dates to be announced).
BIOS immerses students in college-level biology coursework, and encourages interactions among academically like-minded students in the week just before the Fall semester.
The BIOS experience includes lectures, discussions, writing and test experiences and engagement in a group project for presentation.
Students are also embedded in campus life and become familiar with dorm living, dining halls, the layout of campus.
Most importantly students meet each other, work together on challenging projects, and have a chance to develop friendships and study groups that can last for their entire college career and beyond.
