Our students come from near and far. They come interested in how nutrition affects our bodies and lives, communities and world. They come ready to learn, grow, contribute, innovate, and serve. Coming with various experiences and interests, our students make the department diverse, lively, and forward-thinking. A nutrition student might start the day preparing for class in the lobby of the new Michael Hooker Research Center. (The MHRC is a light-filled atrium with comfortable couches, internet access, power outlets, study tables, and the Atrium Café is filled with fare from local restaurants for meals and drinks.) Classes themselves typically have 15 to 50 students, allowing for a personal and interactive setting. Nutrition students have their own student lounge on the 2nd floor of McGavran-Greenberg, where one can study, check email on one of the computers, heat up lunch, get mail, or meet with other nutrition students to compare notes. After classes, students can take advantage of the new SPH Computer Lab in Rosenau Hall and then study over coffee at the Atrium Café or the Friends Café in the Health Sciences Library across the street.
