SQ Online Launch

We have launched SQ Online, an exciting platform specifically for biology undergraduates on campus to read, share and interact as a community. We will be featuring news pieces as well as student-life blogs.

Saltman Quarterly (SQ) and Under the Scope (UTS) are student run publications that are sponsored by the Division of Biological Sciences, with advisors in the Biological Sciences Dean's Office and Student and Instructional Services Office. It exists for those students interested in advancing higher scientific scholarship, and who want to bring greater awareness to undergraduate biology research at UCSD.
