Charles Drew Science Scholars, a unit in the College of Natural Science, serves approximately 250 undergraduate students each year. While the freshman students reside in Rather Hall, many of our students continue to live in the Brody Neighborhood while on campus. Whether on- or off-campus we keep our students connected to campus and community opportunities for professional development, service, and research.
