• What our students have to say...

    Changing into the MMG department is the best decision I've made in my career at UVM. Starting out as a biology major, I did not feel a strong sense of passion for any of my classes until I took MMG101, Microbiology and Infectious Disease with Dr. Johnson. Within the first month of my sophomore year, I switched into the department. In my years at UVM, I have grown to see this department as a home away from home. With instructors and mentors that are friendly and easy to talk to, I have been able to grow academically as well as a person. Doing research in the department allowed me so many opportunities that I feel would not have been able to obtain elsewhere. With attentive and helpful mentors that helped me realize my love for microorganisms, I feel that I was able to pick a career path that has roots here in the MMG department.
