Marine Biology Program celebrates anniversary
When newly hired biology faculty member Cynthia Collin Stong had the chance, in December 1962, to obtain some marine specimens for the general zoology and invertebrate zoology classes, instead of preserved specimens she asked for "living animals, which would enliven the labs," she recalls.
Stong and the University got more than she bargained for, including a whole new program in marine biology that is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. BGSU will welcome back Stong and marine biology alumni on Oct. 4 with a daylong symposium featuring talks by Stong and alumni, a networking reception and a banquet. View the full schedule of events.
