Biological Sciences Alumni Reception
The College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Biological Sciences hosted its first annual Biological Sciences Alumni Reception in Dallas on September 24, 2009. Dean Lawrence Schovanec, Department Chair, John Zak, Development Officers from the College, and TTU-Recruiters in Dallas had an opportunity to meet and greet the alumni at the gathering. Members of the TTU-El Centro Community College STEM initiative in Dallas also attended the gathering.
In his presentation Dr. Zak talked about the importance of alumni assisting Biological Sciences in developing research and teaching opportunities and attracting graduate students that will help TTU attain Tier 1 National Research University status. Alumni were shown a presentation of some of the current teaching and research facilities in Biological Sciences, faculty efforts, and contributions by graduate and undergraduate students to teaching and research.
The event was a great opportunity for the alumni to connect with current efforts in Biological Sciences. Everyone agreed that the reception should be an annual event.
We thank all those who attended and supported the event and would like to extend our special appreciation to the host committee.
