I just set up Twitter for the Biology Department and the BCMB program.
You can find us at @ClarkUBiology and @ClarkuBCMB. Please follow us! We’ll be tweeting seminar announcements and department and program news. I bet you’re wondering why this is better than the e-mail lists. Well, there’s a problem with the e-mail lists, especially if you’re an undergraduate student here at Clark. These e-mail lists are ripped from the registrar, and have to do with your declared major. The Biology Department only sends announcements to Biology majors, and thus, BCMB majors never find out about the events taking place at Lasry. Similarly, Biology students are not on the BCMB majors e-mail list, which is managed through the Chemistry Department, and thus never find out about anything going on north of Maywood Street. If you happen to be a sophomore and haven’t declared a major, then you don’t get any of the e-mails at all.
If you happen to be doing research or outreach this summer, Tweet about it and mention us (put @ClarkUBiology) in your tweet. I’ll happily retweet for the rest of the community to see!
