Like most Colleges and Universities, Lycoming College switched to remote instruction in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The end of the semester was bittersweet without being with the students on campus as many finished four years of hard work (and maybe a little fun too). I saw three of my research students move on from Lycoming College. While they'll (hopefully) be back for a fall graduation ceremony, I would have greatly preferred to experience with them the culmination of some pretty awesome research through a traditional end to the semester. Still, I couldn't be more proud of these students.
Ruric Bowman graduates with departmental honors in biology

Braeden gonales graduates after serving as the cwi chemistry lab manager for the past 2 years.
Congrats to Ruric, Mikayla, and Braeden (and all graduates)!
