A Time to Celebrate

As the academic year comes to an end, we look to celebrate the success of another year. On May 1, 2017, we recognized the dedication and accomplishment of graduating undergraduate students at the school’s outstanding student award reception. This annual award ceremony began back in 2009 to recognize the contributions of the school’s graduating students. Fourteen students were nominated by the faculty in all undergraduate majors for their strong academic success and involvement in research.

Supporting the Success of Student Organization Programs

During the last academic year, American Medical Student Association (AMSA) at UC Merced was able to purchase CPR Mannequins with the financial support of the School of Natural Sciences. Vice President of Membership, Andrew Betancourt said that this investment has been beneficial for not only AMSA members, but also students campus wide and prospective pre-health high school students.

Recognizing SNS Staff that Shine

On June 24th the School of Natural Sciences held its third Annual Staff Award event that recognized staff that demonstrate the highest levels of commitment and dedication to the School of Natural Sciences and the university. Two categories of awards were handed out, one to recognize individual staff contributions through the Individual STAR Award and one to recognize team/unit contributions through the Team STAR Award. Nominations were solicited from faculty, students, and other colleagues from across the campus.
