Tri Beta, the National Biology Honorary Society at Heidelberg, has organized a COVID-Friendly Professional Development Series which will take place throughout the 2020 Fall and 2021 Spring semesters this academic year. The goal of this series is to help students in the sciences boost their resumes, gain insight into the lives of alumni working in the field or continuing their education, and better prepare themselves for life after graduation. These events are being co-sponsored by SCRUBS, the pre-professional organization on campus, and the Heidelberg Chemistry Club.

Every Thursday at 1 o’clock, eight Heidelberg students click into a very different kind of Zoom meeting. They connect with juveniles incarcerated at the Seneca County Youth Center and together, they write.

Through the Writers in Residence program, the youth find their voice through artistic expression and constructive self-expression. This is the second semester Heidelberg students have volunteered to serve as mentors in the program, guided by criminology professor Dr. Sarah Lazzari.
