THE BIOLOGY GRADUATE STUDENT ASSOCIATION
at the University of Missouri - Saint Louis
Thank you for visiting our website, we are a recognized student organization that represents the graduate students in the Department of Biology at the University of Missouri - Saint Louis. Every day, we perform a variety of academic and social activities that prepare us for our future careers either in academia or the private sector. Here in our program everybody smiles and students from all research labs interact on a regular basis making us a group of very close friends. As a recognized organization we have a set of bylaws and regulations that norm our activities. We also have an incredible soccer team representing our department made up by real Jaguarundis.
We have a very dynamic graduate program and we interact regularly with postdocs and faculty. In other words, a Ph.D. student spends on average at UM - Saint Louis 6 of the best six years of his/her life. We support our program in different ways; for instance we elect two of the speakers of our department's seminar series, we manage and keep running our own computer lab, we have reading groups in many areas, we provide other services like our Glossary of English-Spanish terms in Biology, Ecology and Evolution, and many more. We also have very close interactions with the students at Saint Louis University and Washington University. Moreover we have close research ties with the Saint Louis Zoo and the Missouri Botanical Garden.
If you are looking for a strong graduate program where life is not hell...you have found the place. Please follow the links above to learn more about our graduate program, faculty, and the University of Missouri - Saint Louis.
