Research happens all year-round at Colgate. (Photo by Andy Daddio)
In celebrating the Year of ‘13, we are posting a story or list that pertains to our lucky number on the 13th of each month. This month, we’ve compiled a list of summer research projects. There are more than 100 students on campus conducting research, including some who just finished their first year at Colgate, so this is only a small sampling of the academic work happening right now on campus. (See a complete list.)
