The BMB Department presents BMB Creates 2.0

Main Content


12/18/2018 - On the evening of December 13th the BMB Community gathered to celebrate the end of the semester as well as the holiday season.  The event brought out many individuals within the department and coupled several interesting, but different aspects of the BMB climate.  The party provided a venue for all faculty, students and staff to come together and simply focus on fellowship with their fellow colleagues. It also showcased the creativity of many in the department through the BMB Creates Art Show.  Lastly the department held a food drive challenge between buildings, to help combat the issue of student hunger at University Park, where the wining building was announced at the party.

The wining building of the Food Drive Challenge was North Frear Laboratory bringing in 123 items of food.  Arguably the best announcement made all night though, was that the department collectively brought in 481 items of food to help support those in need on the University Park Campus!
