Fun Community

Upper-level students in the Genetics & Genomics Graduate Program host an annual pool party to welcome new students.
Content

Our faculty and students work hard. They talk about their work with passion. But, our intensity is not limited to the laboratory and work.

Before each weekly seminar, students and faculty gather for food and socializing, providing an opportunity to get to know your peers and colleagues and share common interests beyond work.

Our annual retreat is always a highlight of the year. In addition to scientific presentations that help students hone their presentation skills, students and faculty create skits and videos, such as this spoof on a hit song that was done by some students a few years ago and now has over 4.5 million views on YouTube.
