BIOLOGY-INTENSIVE ORIENTATION at LOYOLA
Open to all incoming freshman science and pre-health majors who plan to enroll in BIOL 101 for the fall semester 2013, the Biology-Intensive Orientation at Loyola (BIOL) Program is designed to give incoming freshman biology majors the tools and strategies to succeed at Loyola University Chicago.
The BIOL program is designed to provide incoming students with a preview of the requirements of a BS in Biology as well as the pace and tone of college academics. The program includes sample content lectures and examinations for BIOL 101 (Introduction to Biology), as well as sample lab sessions from the associated laboratory course (BIOL 111). Participants will get acquainted with Loyola’s lakeshore campus, meet faculty, staff, and other students through informal sessions, and gain study skills integral to success in an undergraduate science career.
On average, students who participated in the BIOL program at Loyola had a higher final grade in the introductory biology course for majors than did the non-participants. Although results for individual students CANNOT BE GUARANTEED, BIOL gives participants an edge for their freshman year at Loyola and provides them with valuable learning skills for their entire college career.
