Our weekly seminar includes student research presentations, as well as alumni and other professionals talking about their work and life beyond NCC. Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry majors take the BIO/CHM 475 seminar course (click for course information) three times, twice as participants and 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.
