"The small class sizes and the individual mentoring I received from Avila's outstanding faculty had a profound impact on my career. Post Avila, I earned two graduate degrees in Biology and now enjoy an exciting career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service working to preserve wildlife for future generations."

  "As first-year medical students, we were very pleased to find that Avila's biology program over-prepared us for our first-year courses. With each new topic, we find that we are better prepared than our classmates and have a deeper understanding of the material from our undergraduate biology classes."
