Connect with Other Students

  • BioFrontiers Science Alliance (BFSA): An organization comprised of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers engaged in fundamental and applied science which seeks to promote camaraderie and exchange of knowledge between students across the BioFrontiers Institute and the entire University of Colorado.


  • Clubs and OrganizationsWhether you're looking for a group that emphasizes ethnic or cultural heritage, political involvement, environmental issues, or hobbies, clubs and organizations are an important part of campus life. Joining a club is a good opportunity to pursue specific interests and meet people.
