First Year Programs is Seeking FIG Leaders & Orientation Leaders for 2015!

Being a FIG or Orientation leader is an incredible way to support incoming freshmen and share your expertise at “being a UW student.”  The Marine Biology program is hosting 2 FIGs with FISH 250 in Autumn 2015 and I would love to have marine biology minors leading them! These leadership roles can help you share your love of marine science or hone your teaching and leadership skills.  If this interests you, please apply!! See below for details. 🙂
