The home of the Biology Department is in the Glaske Center for Engineering, Science, and Technology.

Our labs give students hands-on experience in subjects including molecular techniques, live animal studies, research projects with faculty and clinical observation. Our labs have 22 seats, so you will get personal instruction from you professor. Learn more about the labs.

We share a resource room in the Glaske Center that has computers and printers (perfect for printing off that last minute assignment or checking your e-mail before class). These computers also have software that will be very helpful in some of your science courses.
