Congratulations Class of 2020!
The Faculty and Staff of the Department of Biology offer their heartiest congratulations to the Class of 2020. One hundred sixty-four students graduated with a First Major in Biology. Out of this group 45 graduated with distinction and 21 with high distinction. 18 Biology majors were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. More than 70% of Biology majors completed independent studies, demonstrating that they can "think like a biologist." Almost two-thirds earned second majors, minors or certificates in subjects outside the sciences, showing how well-rounded they are. Biology majors revealed their public-spirit by tutoring students in the Durham public schools, running summer camps for middle-school girls to nurture their enthusiasm for science, and engaging in service projects that have made a Durham a better and more scientifically literate community.
We are so proud of all of you!
