Berkeley Connect in Biology is launching in Fall 2020, and we are especially welcoming transfer students this year. Come join us for a semester of activities that will enhance your experience at Cal. Together, we will create community through one-on-one and small-group mentoring, networking with peers and professors, and fun interactive activities that will build your skills and confidence in your academic abilities.

Berkeley Connect in Biology is hosted by the Department of Integrative Biology. Integrative Biology (IB) is all about exploring our world and connecting ideas, bringing people from many parts of the biological sciences together. If you are interested in medicine and related health sciences, ecology and environmental sciences, or wholeā€organism biology, including the study of genetic, cellular, and morphological processes in animals and plants, then you are interested in Integrative Biology!

Curious about the diversity of life on earth? Ever thought about what happens behind the scenes in a natural history museum? Wondering what evolution has to do with human health? Interested in meeting other students who are curious about these things too? Then Berkeley Connect in Biology is for you!

I warmly invite you to join us and find your community through Berkeley Connect.
