Social Activities...the fun stuff!
We have fun together as a department. Biology students and faculty enjoy hanging out together around the department, at planned events and during the summer.
Service Projects - Restoration
Our students have many opportunities to work on ecosystem restoration projects. Each semester you can be involved in rescuing native plants, planting rain gardens and eradicating invasive species. Contact Dave Warners for more information.
Each year the biology department employs 50 to 60 students in various positions. Paid work includes laboratory assistantships, research assistantships, biology Web writing, greenhouse and aquarium assisting and department hospitality work. Laboratory and research positions are particularly helpful for those with plans to go on to graduate school.

As a biology major at Calvin, you have the opportunity to take part in one of Calvin's semester-long off-campus programs or numerous off-campus interim (three-week) courses. With the biology department's close associations with national and local research and environmental studies organizations, you may be able to study off-campus in other programs as well.
