Biology Program at SMC

My rising junior D is interested in biological sciences. I am an alum of St. Mike’s, and I remember that the biology dept in my day was small but produced solid graduates, some of whom complemented their degree with EMT service on the Fire and Rescue squad. What is the current reputation of the biology program? Opportunities for undergrad research and internships? What is the gravitas of the overall curriculum? (I was an English major and had a solid experience). Is the social scene more staid than when I attended in the 80’s? or does a bacchanal mentality persist?
