Marine Bio Day Returns April 14

MBD-header.jpgComing back to campus on April 14, Central Methodist University’s Marine Biology Day will provide high school students with a close look at what life is like for a marine biology student. Visitors will have the chance to explore the world of SCUBA in a crash course lesson held at the campus pool, experience hands-on labs, and even talk with a student panel about the program.

Registration on the day will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by a brief introduction to faculty and staff and a short campus tour. After the tour, attendees will split into groups to begin their dive into the world of marine biology at CMU.

In the Marine Bio Lab, visitors will have a chance to participate in a hands-on sea urchin and oyster lab. Meanwhile, Professor Greg Thurmon will be leading a lesson on SCUBA at the campus pool. During the day, visitors will also hear from a panel of current Central students about their experiences in the field of marine biology both inside and outside of the classroom.

“I hope that students will come and get to see the life of a marine biology student,” said admissions counselor Emma McQueen. “I hope that [this experience] helps them decide if they want to come to school [at CMU] or be a part of the marine biology community.”

Students who decide to study marine biology at Central Methodist get to visit exotic locations, become SCUBA certified for life, and gain critical hands-on experience in a high-demanding field of study. Marine Bio Day is a chance for students to learn more about this rapidly growing major and scholarship opportunities for the program.

Registration for the event is now open on a first-come, first-served basis until the maximum number of students is reached. If this number is exceeded, priority will be given to high school seniors and juniors. For more information or to register for the event, visit registration/inquiryform.
