"The Bio LLC gave me the confidence to go up to professors and just talk to them. I really enjoyed the events, they gave me the opportunity to interact with faculty in a non-educational way through dinners and field trips

"I loved the dinners we had and the interactions they brought between our peers and biology department staff."
