As you already know, getting research experience is essential for any student hoping to break into the field of health and medicine. Up until this year, CSUN allowed students to get credit for biological research by enrolling in BIOL 499. Due to the budget crisis and subsequent cuts, BIOL 499 has been replaced with the radically different BIOL 495. Much more paperwork, meetings and approvals are now required if one wishes to receive credit for Independent Study at CSUN. Head over to the member database to get a copy of the syllabus and read more about this new program.

We will have a committee meeting on Friday, July 30th at 1pm upstairs in the Matador Bookstore Complex, flyers and posters will be provided to you at this time. Please let Thanh know whether you will or will not make it by Friday, July 23rd. During this meeting we will go over advertising and planning for the lecture.
We will start advertising at the beginning of August. Everyone will sign up for locations to post and leave flyers in the community. Check your e-mail for a list of locations/contacts, and please e-mail back with the list of locations you'd like to be assigned to. Once we get a complete list, we'll distribute the posters and flyers accordingly. Flyers and posters will be provided at our next meeting, as well as an additional sign-up list for locations on-campus for posting and distributing flyers.
Any questions or concerns, give Thanh a call.
Update: The meeting has been postponed. More info will be available here or at the first general meeting of the semester.
