The Biology Study Area (BSA)
The BSA (Hitchcock 220) serves as a hub for both students and faculty in the Biological Sciences at the UW. Students study individually and in groups, get answers to biology- and computer-related questions, and complete course-related work on their own computers or the department's.

Instructional Center, Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity
The academic arm of the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity (OMAD) Educational Opportunity Program, the Instructional Center (IC), serves students that are affiliates of the OMAD. The front desk is where students request to use the Center for tutoring, other instruction, or computer lab usage. All students using the Instructional Center must have a scan card; this card is issued through the OMA Counseling Center, or OMA affiliates can come to the IC and sign up for a card. Non-EOP students will be issued a card upon approval of their Referral Form.

Biology Networking Night
During Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters, we work to invite alumni to campus to speak with current students about their experiences post-graduation. Some alumni that come to BNN have graduated recently, and others have been working for several years and been through many career changes. They offer insightful information about how to use  your biology degree, and can also be beneficial to network with if you are seeking advice or opportunities in their career fields.
