    A biology and Spanish major from Kingsford, Michigan, Will is also captain of the swim team at Hamline.

    Two-time researcher
    This will be my second summer conducting collaborative research in the immunology lab. Not only is it a wonderful learning experience and a chance to work one-on-one with a professor, but I also receive a stipend and summer housing on campus.

    Sometimes the best way to figure out how something is supposed to work is to study what it looks like when it’s broken. Analyzing what happens when a gene is defective or when a cell is removed sheds light on what interactions are taking place when everything returns to normal.

    Graduate school bound
    Lab experience will be a crucial component of my application to graduate programs. Having varied research demonstrates my commitment to the field and my enthusiasm for the work. Even more important, however, will be the letters of recommendation sent by my advisors.

    Hamline University is again among the top colleges in the nation according to the latest rankings by Forbes.com. Rankings are based on graduation rate, academic success, student debt, student satisfaction, and post-graduation success.

    Hamline will again be in two locations at the Minnesota State Fair Thursday, August 25-September 5. Stop by the booth in the Education Building for a Hamline water bottle (limited supplies) and the Center for Global Environmental Education Eco-Arcade for kids in the Eco Experience Building for fun, free activities.

    At Hamline, student research happens all year long across all areas of study. Under the guidance of their professors, students undertake these collaborative research projects by first determining what specific topic and question they would like to examine in-depth. The result is a fascinating array of questions and discoveries that lead to students being chosen to present their work at national conferences.
