Hometown: Mantua, OH

Environmental Studies and Biology Major

Bryce is from Mantua, Ohio just down the road from Hiram. He is a double major in environmental studies and biology with a minor in history. He is a member of ODK and a junior in the Eclectic Scholars program.  

As a student worker at the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station, Bryce is in charge of managing the aquaponic and hydroponic growing systems, where produce is grown to feed the Station’s animals. Through this work, Bryce has learned to identify different species of edible and medicinal plants, while also learning to design systems to manage the aquaponic and hydroponic growth.  

“I appreciated that Hiram had a strong biology department. I also chose Hiram to work at the Field Station,” Bryce said. His favorite class so far has been invertebrate biology because of its hands on nature.  

In his free time, Bryce enjoys gardening, 3d printing, lifting, and hiking. His favorite movie is the original Avatar movie. He describes the community feel at Hiram as “family” and enjoys the bingo events put on by the Terrier Activities Board. Bryce was drawn to Hiram because of the Field Station, biology department, and emphasis on small community feel. 

He has aspirations to graduate and find a career in animal or plant conversation. He also hopes to one day live in Northern California.
