Prospective Students

General information

If you are a prospective Bard student with an interest in biology, we welcome you to visit the campus to meet the biology faculty and students, see our facilities, and sit in on a class or two. While you're here, you should also take a campus tour and meet with the Admissions staff.

Please contact Professor Felicia Keesing by email (keesing AT to arrange your visit, or to get the contact information for some current biology students, who would be happy to talk with you about our program.

For your convenience, we've listed a few handy links below.
