The SI Leaders are upper class biology majors who have excelled in their major. At these weekly sessions you can get assistance with understanding concepts and material in lecture and lab.  Also, it allows you to network with other BIOL 1440 students.  SI Leaders typically talk about study habits and how to succeed as a biology major.  Two in-person sessions and one on-line session are offered per week.  The SI schedule will be provide by your instructor and it is also posted as a link on the SI webpage.

Since 2017, we have found that students who regularly attended SI sections earn a half to full letter grade higher than those students that do not attend.
