Prospective Students Visit Campus
The Office of Graduate Studies hosted 130 prospective students
of The Kellogg School of Science and Technology during the
past three weeks. Marylyn Rinaldi, the graduate program's
administrative director, thanked current graduate students
for their role in making the prospective students feel welcome
and for their suggestions on how to improve the visits. "At
The Scripps Research Institute, we have a well-organized,
cohesive group of students, faculty, and administrators who
are devoted to the progress of science, and we think the students
we interview see this quite clearly," she says. "We've already
had some students accept our offer of a place in next year's
