Friday Harbor Labs & Marine Biology @ UW Info Session

Attend a Marine Biology at UW and Friday Harbor Laboratories Information Session next Monday, 10/21/13 at the Seattle Campus from 10:30-11:30 AM in the Fishery Sciences (FSH) bulding, room 203.


This is the best way to learn about the marine science programs at UW and plan for study at Friday Harbor Laboratories. Advisers from Aquatic & Fishery Sciences, Oceanography, Biology, and Marine Biology will be present to answer questions about their majors/minors. Billie Swalla, interim director at Friday Harbor Laboratories will also share information about current programs and research opportunities as well as answer questions regarding the logistics of planning a quarter of study at the labs.

Bagels will be served!

Following the program, at 11:30, representatives from the Coastal Observation And Seabird Survey Team (COASST) will provide information about their citizen science programs and internship opportunities for undergrads.
