South Carolina State University has a great Biology department. I am a biology major and I have had mostly great professors that actually teach and explain information to me. An amazing advisor to help me along the way with making my schedule and helping me find better ways to study. I love our Biology department because my professors make time to teach us and make sure we understand the knowledge we need to for testing. Although it may be hard they work with you if you work with them.
