Small faculty to student ratio provides hands-on educational opportunities for students to work closely with faculty and other students in the classroom, the laboratory, and in the field.
In recent years, our faculty have taken students on research trips as close as the Southeast and as far as Wyoming, Mexico, Peru, and Tanzania.
