Welcome to the Department of Biology at VMI
Thank you for your interest in the VMI Biology Department. You will find many exciting things about us on this site. You will find that we offer you many exciting opportunities to explore the limitless facets of biology which will prepare you well for a successful future. Our faculty are fully committed to providing you a world class educational experience.
With our small class sizes we can get to know you better and interact with you one-on-one. We can also offer you a unique one-on-one opportunity to join with us in our research programs so you can experience the real world of biology outside the classroom, as well as making an original contribution to science.
I addition to reading this material, the best way to get to know us better is to spend a weekend at VMI at one of our Open Houses offered throughout the year, as well as arranging a return visit for your own special day as a guest of the Biology Department.
I look forward to seeing or hearing from you soon. Please contact us if you have any further questions.
