Thank you to all of the students who applied for the First Buley Library Undergraduate Research Awards.


About Christopher Wisniewski

I'm a member of the class of 2016 and will be graduating cum laude in May.  As a graduating senior I was also awarded with departmental honors from the bio dept. (magna cum laude); as well as with the Harlan Stevenson service award for contributing significantly to the bio dept. during my career as an undergraduate.  I'm a CT native and have lived in Stratford my entire life.  I'll be coming back to SCSU in the fall to pursue a masters degree in biology.  I plan to continue to study bats and white-nose syndrome under Dr. Dunbar.  My ultimate goal is to one day become a college professor who specializes within the field of mammalogy.

About Samantha Groskritz:

I'm in the class of 2018. After graduation I plan on becoming a Spanish translator. Other things that you might want to know about me: I'm on the softball team at southern and in the Honors College. I'm majoring in Spanish and minoring in Marketing and Political Science. 

About Nicholas Plescia

I am a senior (graduating in May) nursing student. I will be working as a nurse on a liver and kidney transplant unit at Yale-New Haven Hospital after graduation, and one day hope to receive my PhD in nursing so that I could teach! I guess some other facts about me are that I am a member of the Honors College at SCSU and am in the process of having my thesis research published!
