Biochemistry & Biophysics Orientation Walkthrough


Molecular Biology Building

Welcome to Biochemistry, Biophysics, & Molecular Biology (BBMB)!

Welcome, incoming Biochemistry and Biophysics majors in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) and Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS)! We have prepared this webpage to provide supplemental information to your orientation. We hope you will find the links below useful to help prepare for your first advising meeting to plan and register for your Fall semester class.

Your first step in developing your Fall schedule is speaking with your Academic Advisor and BBMB Faculty Mentor. These people are here to support you throughout your experience at Iowa State University. Your Advisor can help you do things like decide which classes to take and register for classes, and your Mentor can guide you in decisions about things like research, internships, and your professional path. You can find your assigned Advisor and Mentor on AccessPlus under "Student"->"Current Student Info." For additional structure in planning your fall schedule, you might use this Fall_Schedule_Planning_Sheet.

We look forward to meeting you and are available to help you develop a personalized first semester schedule that is tailored to your interests. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
