Sign Up to BUMP !

The Biochemistry Undergraduate Mentoring Program (BUMP) will be starting soon for the upcoming academic year. This is a fantastic opportunity for mentees (U1s or U2s) to meet fellow students, make new friends, and learn more about the biochemistry program! We also need U3s (or on top of their game U2s!) to volunteer as mentors for the program. The commitment is pretty casual and BUGS will be hosting several social events for mentors and mentees throughout the year. If you have any questions feel free to ask! I strongly encourage everyone who is interested to sign up HERE before September 23rd at midnight.

There is a picture of some mentor-mentee pairs discussion over some FREE FOOD during last year’s BUMP breakfast.
