Alum Success

I didn't realize how important that faculty interaction could be until I spent a few weeks here. The personal attention is motivating, often pushing me to work harder than I would have otherwise.

Student Research...

John Leech Macomb, MI

John studied ways to get biology into the classroom. Leech and Pickford Area Schools successfully developed a camp to spark an interest in Michigan's natural resources and promote outdoor education in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. The six-week ecology camp was for third, fourth, and fifth graders. Kids learned dip netting techniques, predator/prey relationships, and insect identification.
