On February 2nd, Dean Frank M. LaFerla held a breakfast for the student athletes of the Biological Sciences School in the dean’s conference room of Natural Sciences II. Treated to a filling breakfast loaded with plenty of protein, the students were congratulated by Dean LaFerla on their hard work and success. In addition, he also gave the students some guidance on how to maintain a balanced academic/work life. Some of the attendants took the opportunity to get career advice from the dean as well. Dean LaFerla was very pleased with the student participation for the event and looks forward to hosting another gathering with the student athletes in the near future.
