Did you know?
The CNR Student Resource Center is a privilege, not a right? ?
Be sure you are respectful of its staff, the space, and other students. The Student Resource Center and Computer Lab are open Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5:00pm - 5 o'clock is when the Center closes, not when you should be packing up your belongings. If you need to study for an exam or finish up your homework, come back in the morning, the Center is open bright and early!


And remember!
Biology 1A/1AL, General Biology, will not be offered in summer 2012. As Tele-BEARS approaches for spring 2012, it's important for students to think about the impact this has on your planning. Many students require this course for their major or for their pre-med requirements. Please discuss with your advisor if you have any questions about selection of courses for Spring and Summer. The reason for the cancellation is that currently there are 2 labs for each of Biology 1A and Biology 1B and are therefore limited in terms of the numbers of students whom can be accommodated in any given semester. A project to build an additional lab for each class, and to redesign the lab prep room for Biology 1AL, has been approved and the work will begin in January, with an expected completion date of the middle of next summer. Due to the fact that lab prep room will be affected, Biology 1A will be cancelled this summer. Biology 1B will be offered, as usual, even though they are building new space for their lab as well.
