Faculty Advising:

In addition to meeting with academic advisors to complete your academic plan, students can also meet with faculty to learn more about careers, internships, transfer programs including prerequisite classes and experience needed, and answer questions they have about biology and healthcare careers.  Yiren primarily works with students interested in careers in nutrition and food science and also advises for careers on the healthcare pathways page for biology students and non-majors students interested in biology classes or careers in biology.
