Marine Biology
Class Year: 
Home Town: 
Arlington, Mass.

Catherine’s love of all things marine brought her to RWU, where she’s quickly taken advantage of everything our waterfront campus has to offer. An assistant in RWU’s Wetlab and Shellfish Hatchery and former New England Aquarium intern, Catherine is also a recipient of a National Science Foundation fellowship. When she’s not immersed in research, you can find Catherine in the Performing Arts Center where she’s president of the Stage Company. Catherine is also a member of the University Honors Program, a science tutor, a site leader for our community service program and the secretary of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship – oh and on the Dean’s List every semester! This summer, Catherine’s internship at Mystic Aquarium will help her complete a senior honors thesis on her favorite subject: penguins. Catherine is making her mark. What will you do?
