Honors Physiology is the only excuse for having a knife (more accurately, a scalpel) on campus. 

Muscles cover us from the head to toe, clearly playing an integral role in our bodies. Honors Physiology, a class for juniors and seniors, spent around three weeks dissecting mink specimens to see these muscles firsthand, drawing connections between the muscles of the mink and that humans.

“If you know about your muscles and how they function, then in terms of the big global picture, I think people will have better overall health,” physiology teacher Mika Anderson explains.
