  • Regarding Health Careers --  a message from Dr. Eisen
    • As a reminder to students, Dr. Eisen will off-campus on a sabbatical leave that officially starts on the date of the President's Workshop, 19 August 2004.  If you are applying to a health-related professional school during the upcoming academic year, please direct all inquiries regarding your evaluation file to Brother Edward Salgado.
    Summer Courses at Gulf Coast Research Lab
  • Applications and the program for courses to be taught at the GCRL this summer are now available at the GCRL web site.  The course listing includes links to course descriptions including specifics about the pre-requisites (for example 8 or more college cr. hrs. of biology). 
  • Course Calendar for 2004  There is short "May Mester" (3 course offerings) and two standard summer terms with 4 and 5 course offerings respectively.  You can take only one course per term.  These are all courses related to marine biology.  You can see the "Summer Field Program" list of courses, a course calendar, and information about fees and housing at the GCRL Summer Field Program web site.
  • With Bro. Edward's permission, GCRL courses can be used toward your CBU Biology degree!  That is, any of these GCRL courses can be used as a CBU Biology elective.  (See the end of the biology course description in the CBU catalog.)

    • "In addition to the valuable experience and good pay that a Co-op or Internship will give you, very many of the Opportunities listed on this website also provide Travel Reimbursement, Housing and Meals." 
    • The links are organized and cross-listed according to categories for various fields of biology, opportunities for minority and underrepresented students,   international opportunities, alphabetical, and by state. 
    • The links listed at the RIT site include CBU's MIRT program for summer research in Brazil or Uganda with opportunities primarily for students between their junior and senior year.
