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.

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.”

Sinque Tavares

Sinque Tavares Theatre ’17 “My eyes have been opened to other dance forms and how to choreograph in different perspectives; I like to incorporate different genres into the same dance — hip hop, jazz, modern, tap — I like to do everything.”

Gray, Damon

Damon Gray Communication ’16 “Eastern gave me hands-on experience in video editing and live sports broadcasts. With the help of the staff and fellow students, the Eastern TV sports crew was the perfect starting point for a career at ESPN.”
