The Hampden-Sydney College Journal of the Sciences has published its third annual volume. The Journal showcases Hampden-Sydney student research. For the first two year, the Journal was an on-line publication but this year, there is also a printed edition. According to advisor, Assistant Professor of Biology Michael Wolyniak, "Journals are moving from print to online, so we considered this carefully, and I admit that I was a little skeptical although we have always had in the back of our heads that it would be nice to have a printed copy. This year the desire and the means came together. The response has been exciting; the Journal has a much higher profile on and off campus." Full Story...
