“We want to make potential students aware that a graduate degree earned in S&T’s College of Arts, Sciences, and Business will equip them with a world-class education while enabling many to stay close to home,” says Dr. Melanie Mormile, associate dean of research and external relations for the college and professor of biological sciences. “Our graduate programs are both rigorous and diverse, and our students leave ready for professional and research careers. This event will give prospective students the chance to learn about our programs from faculty and current students and to learn about the benefits of living in Rolla.”
