Please come to the annual BDIC Alumni Networking event on Sunday, April 2nd, 12-2 pm, in the honors events hall next to Roots Café.

We have many alumni coming from a wide variety of different fields, and it’s an excellent opportunity for you to talk with them and get their advice. Often at these events the alumni offer our students internships and even jobs. This year alumni are attending who are health care professionals, writers, computer scientists, business professionals, and biotechnologists. We will even have a fashion designer skyping in from Paris!

We encourage all BDIC students to submit an application for the BDIC Scholarship and Research Award. The application deadline is March 27th, 2017. The application can be found at, Various Applications. Applications may be emailed directly to (Please include "Scholarship" in your header).
