Ten Lycoming College interns shared the results of research they completed over the past year at the 10th Annual Susquehanna River Symposium held at Bucknell University Nov. 13-14. The symposium’s theme was “The River, Its Landscapes, and Our Lives.”

Lycoming College’s Clean Water Institute sponsored the internships that supported a variety of research projects on local waterways.

“The high-quality research compiled by these students has helped us continue to build on our understanding of how human interactions affect our local environment,” said Mel Zimmerman, biology professor and director of the Clean Water Institute. “These internships provide students with a high impact experience that fosters an appreciation for their world and prepares them well for future careers.”

The ten biology majors include: senior Peter Gnocchi, junior Dominic Novella, senior Samuel Wanner, sophomore Ryan Orgitano, senior Clayton Good, senior Jennifer Monico, junior Alison McNett, senior Hannah Dulovich, junior Kalynn Newman, and junior Abigail O’Connor.
