The Department has an organization of undergraduates, the Microphiles Club, which is open to all students. The activities of the group change to reflect the interests of students who participate. All microbiology majors are urged to participate at some level of involvement. The Club sponsors field trips to local biotech firms and speakers on topics such as the research activities being conducted at the University of Washington and in the Seattle area. Discussions take place on career awareness and opportunities; graduate and health professional school admissions; and application policies and processes. Announcements of Microphiles meetings are made in microbiology classes, and e-mail. If you would like to participate, please contact , Phone:(206) 543-0468, Room T-386.
