Student Departmental Advisors (SDAs) are specially selected senior majors who are dedicated to nurturing interest in the subject of Biology. They are responsible for running and holding advising hours prior to course registration, representing the department at the annual Academic and Majors fairs, meeting with outside guests, and maintaining a list of students interested in Biology.
Each Spring the Department selects two rising seniors to serve as Student Departmental Advisors. Students who have expressed an interest and whose major GPAs are above 3.00 (a college requirement) are considered. The Department attempts to select seniors from different “areas” within the Biology major. If you are interested in becoming an SDA, speak with your advisor and/or the Department Chair.
