A new Biology Living-Learning community is available for incoming freshmen. The purpose of the Bio Living-Learning Community (BioLL) is to help intended Biology and Biochemistry students succeed at ECU, in the major, and in their careers. The BioLL offers: 1) living together in a group with a shared academic purpose and some shared courses; 2) having an Resident Advisor that shares their major; 3) some classes and tutoring scheduled on-site; 4) and regular interaction with Biology faculty, in particular the BioLL coordinators Drs. Sutton, Farwell and Reyes.


Each year, beginning in 2012, several need-based scholarships for first-generation college students will be awarded to BioLL participants through the BioExcellence Scholarship program.   Scholarships will be awarded for one year at a time and be renewable as long as a student maintains a 3.0 GPA and remains in the STEM fields.
