Join the Discovery and Celebration of Life Sciences
Whether it's facilitating a seminar on the genetics of everyone's favorite Drosophila fruit flies and Arabidopsis plant models or celebrating the diversity of scientific research in the fall during the campuswide tradition of Picnic Day, the College of Biological Sciences hosts a variety of events each year for students, alumni, faculty, staff and the general public.
Each year, the Storer Lectureship in the Life Sciences and Joint Seminars in Molecular Biology welcome some of the world's preeminent researchers, representing a multitude of fields across the biological spectrum.
In the spring, college leadership honors the top graduating seniors with the annual Student Awards Reception and also inducts new members into the Phi Sigma Biological Sciences Honors Society.
To conclude the academic year in June, we host the College of Biological Sciences Commencement Ceremony to celebrate the achievements of our students and welcome hundreds of graduates to the UC Davis alumni family.
