Football isn't the only thing that worked out better than Dan Brennan ever could have imagined in the months and years following his first challenging weeks of college. Toward the end of his sophomore year his college career took a giant leap forward when he was invited to join a research project led by Dr. Phil Ihinger, professor of geology. Dan credits the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and its director Dr. Karen Havholm with making the research experience possible for him. With ORSP support, Dan joined the team as a paid student researcher, allowing him to earn money while continuing to focus on his studies. Learn more about faculty-student collaboration here.
Soon-to-be-graduate remarks: "While I've had dozens of high-impact experiences during my time here, some of the best parts of my college career were the people I met," Robin says. "The professors, mentors, classmates and friends that I made during my time in college are irreplaceable.The relationships I've had with professors have led to scholarships, a research project and me being able to sit on and give feedback at several College of Business yearly board meetings."
