Our weekly seminar includes student research presentations, as well as alumni and other professionals talking about their work and life beyond NCC. Biology majors take BIOL 290 (click for course information) twice as participants and BIOL 490 once as a presenter, capping off their research experience. Seminars are open to the campus community and you don't have to be in the course to attend.
