Department of Biology

Student Kudos

We are proud of the students in this department so this page is our opportunity to highlight some of their accomplishments, especially in research, and awards over the course of the year. If you know of someone who needs to be mentioned on this page, or if you yourself should be, please contact Dr. Wood with the details. The three Biology Department awards (Outstanding Student in Biology, the Ola Joyce Springer Hander/Lucille Capt Endowed Scholarship, and the Dr. Sally A. Provence Presidential Endowed Scholarship) are described, along with the current award recipients, under the "Student Awards" tab to the left.

At our student worker appreciation party this spring (2013) we had a biology cell cookie decorating contest. The best (and only) prokaryotic cookie belonged to Katie Bennett! The best plant cell cookie decorator was Bill Bryant! And finally, the best animal cell cookie came from Tim Jones!
