- Movie Night: Could Jurassic Park come true? What about Contagion? Watch a favorite movie and chat with scientists afterwards about what is possible and what is Hollywood fantasy. Movies will be shown in the residential houses. If you have a movie to suggest, contact Tom Torello or Lisa Fountain.
- Dinners: Have dinner with a faculty member and learn what’s new in cell and molecular biology. Or discuss your favorite biology-related topic.
- Debate Night: Challenge your friends to a debate about the hottest controversy in the literature. Small groups of students work with a faculty member to choose a paper and argue its strengths and weaknesses. Invite your friends to vote who is most convincing, and win a pound of LA Burdick chocolate. To organize a debate night, contact Tom Torello.
- Winter holiday party
- Winter break breakfast: staying on campus during January? Come sample Lisa’s hot breakfast and a cup of coffee.
- Study break: Come enjoy an evening of food and conversation. If you're a senior putting the finishing touches on your thesis, this is a great opportunity for a much needed break. For everyone else, it's a great opportunity to hang out with fellow concentrators and support those who are thesis-ing!
- Show and Tell: An evenings’ entertainment in which seniors channel their inner artistry to illustrate their thesis work using rap, poetry, dance, song, skits, you name it, while sampling treats from L.A. Burdick.
- Senior Celebration: congratulations to senior concentrators!
- BBQ: all life science concentrators are invited to a summer BBQ.
Student Events Committee: Want to join a committee of students to help organize concentration events? Email Tom!
