Samantha Couch is earning a B.S. in Biology and a certificate in animal behavior. She received a Hutton Honors College Creative Partnership Grant while volunteering at the William R. Adams Zooarchaeology Laboratory here at IU. Samantha is responsible for the curation and maintenance of fish specimens there and has quickly become the lab’s undergraduate fish expert.

The Crowell funds will allow her to attend a ten-day tropical biology course in Grand Cayman, where Samantha will study aquatic and terrestrial environments. This will be her first experience with scientific diving. The class will be invaluable to Samantha as she aspires to become a marine biologist.
