Biology

Students in Eastern’s biology program become biologists through extensive practical experience, and spend more time in the laboratory and field than in lecture. Working with state-of-art scientific equipment in small classes taught by a diverse full-time faculty, students cultivate an intellectual curiosity about life processes while developing analytical skills and technical expertise.

Alexis Lyonnais

Alexis Lyonnais Psychology ’17 “I hope to eventually work in the field of corrections; My favorite part of the internship was getting to sit in on visits with different officers. Although the situations of the clients may be similar, every case is different.”

Piro, Justin

Justin Piro Biochemistry ’05 “The majority of my classes at Eastern included a strong lab component. I was doing what scientists do — getting outside of the classroom and working with the latest scientific equipment. Eastern really set the groundwork for me to go to graduate school.”

Zenzie, Lauren

Lauren Zenzie Communication ’15 “My communication classes taught me what I needed to know to pursue an on-air job after graduation.”

Rathbun, Molly

Molly Rathbun Four-time All-American ’12 “I strongly believe being a student athlete shaped me into the best version of myself, and has made me realize my passion for helping others to do the same.”

Nicholas Khan

Nicholas Khan Visual Arts ’17 “The art faculty were always willing to go that extra mile, and the additional studio space in the new Fine Arts Instructional Center enabled me to work on my art outside of class. I had a great experience at Eastern that I’ll never forget.”
