What is Donuts with the Dean?

UCI BioSci’s Donuts with the Dean is a quarterly event for BioSci undergrads. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with BioSci Dean Frank LaFerla! We also typically invite a special guest to attend, ranging from medical doctors, pharmacists, biotech experts, research scientists, and more!

Each quarter we have a different guest join us, so even if you have attended Donuts with the Dean before, there are always new opportunities to meet different experts who can share their experiences, insights, and career opportunities in the field of biology. So bring your questions, grab a donut, and get to know some amazing people in BioSci, as well as your own peers!

Quarterly Event

BioSci hosts Donuts with the Dean 3 times a year, typically within the first couple weeks of the new quarter. A perfect way to start your quarter off right!

Ask BioSci experts

You have questions – We have answers! Dean LaFerla, faculty, and our special guests were undergrads too. They can share their journeys to success with you!

Meet your peers
