Muskingum Students and Faculty Collaborate on Research for 2007 Summer Fellows Program
The Daily Jeffersonian, September 16, 2007

Several Muskingum College students and their faculty members have spent their summer broadening their horizons and conducting research as a part of the College's 2007 Summer Fellows program. To be considered for a fellowship, students must write a detailed proposal of what they intend to study and what they hope that study will achieve. This is done in tandem with the faculty members with whom they intend to work, and who provide the formal nomination for the fellowship. Proposals are then considered by the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs for approval. The following science students and faculty worked together this summer:

Rebecca Schroeder, a senior biology major from Belville, conducted biomedical research in cell physiology and histology with Assistant Professor of Biology, Dr. Amy Santas.

Anna Bellyaevskaya, a senior molecular biology and chemistry major form Kennett Square, PA, did research on the dystroglycan complex in skin, also working with Dr. Santas.

Jason Tarbert, a senior geology major from Pataskala, conducted marine paleoclimate research with Instructor of Geology, Shelly Judge.

Pie a Professor!

Have you ever wanted to pie a professor? Here's your chance. Several professors are participating, including our own Science Division professors, Dr. Ingold from Biology, and Dr. Daquila from the MACS Department. The Science Office has three jars--for Dr. Ingold, Dr. Daquila, and Dr. Nutt. Simply place your spare change and a slip of paper with your name and contact information into one of the professor's jars. The professor with the most money will get pied, and one name will be drawn to throw the pie.

Vote between September 17 and September 28. Winners will be announced the following week.

All proceeds will assist in sending Boy Scounts from Troop 158 in Zanesville to summer camp, as part of the Fall 2007 Student Teacher Advocacy Projects. For more infomation contact
