Summer classes at the OU Biological Station are an unusual collegiate experience. Squeezing in a semester’s worth of information into 10 days of instruction is intense and exhausting for both student and professor. But it is so worth it. Students are focused on one subject. Being in a remote location limits the distractions and helps to concentrate effort on the class. As the professor, I love having informal time with the students. Getting to know them over meals in the dining hall, chatting with them while we walk along the lake shore, and encouraging them when I see them in the library. I tried to get our class outside as much as possible and I hope they students felt the same when I called it Biology Camp for College Students.
