News and Announcements
Learning Community: We have created The Science of Nutrition Learning Community to provide first-year students with the opportunity to explore the scientific basis that helps us understand the relationships between foods and health while building a community. This community will learn together, socialize together, get to know faculty, and participate in active learning through specialized events both on and off campus.
