Biology & Chemistry

STEM Learning Communities Page

The Biology & Chemistry Learning Community is designed to provide a great foundation for students who are interested in exploring biology and chemistry (as well as the fascinating phenomena that exist in between). As a member of this learning community, you'll take the introductory sequences in biology and chemistry plus the mathematics course that best suits your goals, while also participating in out-of-classroom experiences with your fellow STEM students. The Biology & Chemistry Learning Community would be a good fit for anyone interested in majoring in either of these two disciplines, and would be a fantastic choice for students pursuing careers in the health fields.

Student Organizations

Achievement in Medicine (AIM)

(AIM) is a student organization developed for students who are planning to continue their education in health care related programs after graduating from Edgewood College. Members of AIM have goals of going to medical school, veterinarian school, dentistry school, pharmacy school, physician assistant school, and other health care related graduate programs. Pre-health professional representatives such as medical school recruiters make contact with students via AIM. If you are planning a career in a health-related field, AIM is the organization that will further your goals.
