Simpson Gets You There

Weighing, measuring and collecting parasites from rodents all summer may not sound fun to you, but it is to Harry. Aware that parasites carry diseases, a group of students started to wonder – if they could predict an increase in rodent populations, would there be an increase in parasites too? If so, could they educate and prevent spikes in disease? It’s just the beginning, but it could help people. Go Harry!

Current students highly ranked “the content of the courses within my major is valuable” in a recent Student Satisfaction Survey.
