Eagles Excel in Biology allowed me to succeed in Gen Bio I and Gen Bio II. We reviewed foundational biological concepts and General Biology course material, and this allowed me to feel confident before starting my freshman year at FGCU. It was a great opportunity to meet fellow students with shared interest. I made many friends in the program and we organized a study group before the semester started, and now we share the same upper-level courses! I received invaluable advice not just about Biology, but about the university experience as a whole. ”
