The Hampden-Sydney Journal of the Sciences is now in its fourth year as a student-run publication and its second year of producing a print version. The Journal is a showcase of the wide variety of scientific research being conducted at Hampden-Sydney by its students. The work in the Journal represents the products of summer research experiences, departmental honors work, classroom projects, and other ventures that show the central importance of research to a complete Hampden-Sydney scientific education.
Each year, a "Feature" section highlights a subject that the student editorial board feels is of particular interest to the community. This year's section focuses on Hampden-Sydney's new Energy Research Laboratory and highlights three different student research initiatives currently being run at this facility.
This year's edition was led by editor-in-chief Chris Ferrante '15 (Jamestown, North Carolina) and section editors Dane Asuigui '16 (Chemistry-Flandreau, South Dakota), Travis Goodloe '16 (Biology-Mobile, Alabama), Brian Hulsizer '16 (Psychology-Farmville, Virginia), Lin Nguyen '16 (Mathematics and Computer Science-Hanoi, Vietnam), Daniel Osarfo-Akoto '15 (Biology-New Rochelle, New York), and Shaquann Seadrow '16 (Physics and Astronomy-Norfolk, Virginia).
