Visit Biology

Interested in a campus visit?  We would love to show you all the amazing things that Biology at Illinois has to offer.  Consider one of the following.

Prospective Freshmen Information Meetings

Academic advisors from the Schools of Integrative Biology and Molecular and Cellular Biology host virtual information meetings periodically throughout the year via Zoom. Current Biology students will also be present to share their experiences and answer your questions. Please see our calendar to register for a time that works best for you.

Admitted Freshmen Meetings

Due to the pandemic we have suspended all on campus tours and meetings.  We plan to offer virtual information meetings after the February 2021 notification date.  Please check back for more information.

Biology specific Meetings and Facility Tours

The Biology Instructional Program offers virtual Prospective Student Appointments, during which you can meet one-on-one with a member of our instructional progam. Our staff is available to answer questions about the curriculum and career options for students in Biology. To schedule this appointment, please call (217) 333-6774.

Correspond with current MCB and IB Students

MCB Leaders are a small group of accomplished students in MCB who are eager to help current and prospective students learn more about the University of Illinois, the College of LAS and the Molecular and Cellular Biology major. Feel free to email these students for answers to your questions about student life at the University of Illinois.

SIBSAs (School of Integrative Biology Student Ambassadors) participate in many types of recruiting and informational events on campus to provide a student voice for Integrative Biology. SIBSAs are pursuing many different career paths but all enjoy talking about the major and helping prospective students better understand what Integrative Biology has to offer.

Email leaders@biology.illinois.edu to correspond with current biology students at Illinois.  They are eager to answer your questions and share their experiences.
