Welcome Class of 2024
The Biology Department congratulates you on your admission to Wellesley!
We wish we could meet you in the traditional way, when we meet admitted students during our Spring Open Campus event. Unfortunately, things are quite different this year. We know it is challenging for you to make decisions this way, without having interacted with us, but rest assured that we are super excited to receive you in the Fall!
A little bit about us: The Biology Department is large, diverse, and made up of almost 30 teacher-scientists. We are completely invested in student success in our classes (which may include a lab and/or field component) and in our research laboratories! We are proud of being a cohesive community that organizes multiple events each year including ice cream socials, movie viewings and also enlightening special lectures. There is also an active student group for biology majors called (BC)^2, which hosts several fun and educational events every year. You can find out more about current and past events on our Facebook page.
Please visit our department virtually at this website so you can find information on how to get started in Biology. There you can explore what courses we teach, how the major is structured, and what types of exciting research are happening in the department among our professors. Many of our faculty are actively involved in research and offer opportunities for student research both during the semester and over the summer.
Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you have any questions. We are thrilled to be starting a new academic year with you!
Department Chair, Prof. Andrea Sequeira (firstname.lastname@example.org)
