A summer to remember....
julie erthal, Undergraduate '11
Participated in the Invertebrate zoology course at the
Friday harbor marine laboratories,
university of Washington
Julie enjoying the sunset with friends and looking out for orca whales at
summer after my sophomore year I enrolled in the Marine Invertebrate Zoology
some really great connections while at the labs; my professors were both
well-respected experts in their fields, and many of my classmates were PhD
students in university labs across the country. I formed strong friendships
with people from all over the world, and through them I learned a lot about
the process of getting a PhD and what it would be like to pursue a career in
marine biology. As a bonus,
Every summer the Invertebrate Zoology class hosts the Invertebrate Ball and everyone from the labs comes out to celebrate dressed as their favorite invertebrate. I’m Melibe, a hooded nudibranch (sea slug) that smells like melon when removed from the water!
