Other Comments

Students must be able to get to campus. There are two locations of animals on campus we can use help at. There are other locations that transportation is needed, but they would not be placed there if they did not have the means to get there.

These animals are very important for the biomedical community and provide a lot of experience to learn in that field.

We encourage students to include a resume or transcript when e-mailing a faculty mentor to apply for a posted position.
