Students can sign up for classes ranging from Southern Classics to Favorite Theme Park Treats, learn to cook with a professor, and even gain new skills by watching Campus Rec's cooking videos.

Attention Anteater Families!

Registration for Anteater Family Weekend remains OPEN, and classroom sessions are filling fast! Be sure to secure your spot for the event before space runs out.

Join us on February 28 for "Why (Partially) Unboil the Egg?"

Professor Gregory Weiss from the School of Physical Sciences focuses on his team's 2015 experiment to un-boil a hardboiled egg in this fascinating presentation during Anteater Family Weekend.

This Nobel Prize winning experiment not only solved significant challenges for the manufacturing of proteins, but it also became the basis of a spin-out company founded last year. Molding shapes is incredibly important in the function of a protein and this exciting research shows us how we can control proteins and enzymes in human bodies.
