Checking in with Dean Forbes - March 2017

A monthly Q&A with College of Biological Sciences Dean Valery Forbes.


What are you most excited about at the moment?

We welcomed a capacity crowd of nearly 650 people — 230 prospective students and their families — to the CBS Dean’s Reception last week. For those who haven’t been to one, the event is designed to give prospective students and their families a closer look into the undergraduate student experience in CBS as they prepare to choose a college. It was wonderful to see the energy and interest.
