During the summer, Colgate students are applying their liberal arts know-how in a variety of real-world settings. Microbiology major Rebecca Gowen ’19, from Philadelphia, Pa., describes her summer research, conducted through the Beckman Scholars Program.
After graduation, William Rosencrans ’19 will spend a year conducting biomedical research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md., as a 2019 Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) recipient.
In the early, wintery weeks of 2018, Adams and geology major Monica Dimas ’19 (Los Angeles, Calif.) traveled together on a research expedition to Tanzania. There, they planted a seismometer to capture data that describe the moving and shaking around “the mountain of the gods,” Ol Doinyo Lengai.
