Calling all Natural Science folks! Maryville College has made it to the final four of the big dance and we are currently ahead of Sweetbriar College! This is the farthest we've gotten in this competition since I started at MC in 2012. You can place your vote on multiple devices once every 24 hours! GO SCOTS!http://www.blueridgeoutdoors.com/top-adventure-college/
Today, in Montgomery, Alabama, Julia Vineyard ('17) and Thomas Moore ('17) presented their senior study research at the Association of Southeastern Biologist meetings. Julia's work was on the basking behavior of Bonaire whiptail lizards, while Thomas presented his Cumberland Island gopher tortoise work. Congrats to both, it's these moments, when your students blow away a presentation, that your heart swells with pride as a professor!
