The Department of Biology is housed in the completely renovated Kirkpatrick Hall, where several large laboratories for classwork, as well as six small laboratories for individual student-faculty research, are available. The department has two greenhouses, a cold room, a dark room, modern environmental chambers, new microscopes and computerized physiology equipment.

The Biology department includes the Biology Program and the Equine Studies Program.

Students who excel in Biology may be inducted into Beta Beta Beta, the national honor society for Biology.

The availability of the faculty, coupled with the facilities for student research and the senior project experience, prepare the departments' graduates for success in numerous different areas.
