Ashland science students represented a wide range of disciplines at this year's College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Symposium (URCA). In its sixth year, the URCA event was originally chaired by a faculty member from the Department of Biology/Toxicology and has always highlighted a strong contingent of science presentations. This year eleven science students from biology, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, geology and toxicology presented their independent research projects in oral and poster presentations. Six of these students are members of our Choose Ohio First scholars program, which provides scholarship funding for excellent graduates of Ohio high schools majoring in the sciences.
