Biology and Environmental Studies Major

As a biology and environmental studies major from Shalersville, OH, Logan chose Hiram because it felt warm, welcoming, and caring to him – and he still felt welcomed into the community on campus as a commuter student. 

During his time at Hiram, Logan took advantage of one of Hiram’s greatest assets – study away trips. Logan spent three weeks traveling the west coast of the United States studying the politics and ecology of trees and the logging industry. 

“The ancient forest and great trees study-away gave me the opportunity to explore the vast forest and cities of the west coast. Being in those places was both a learning opportunity and a chance to create lifelong memories with friends,” Logan said. 

With most of his hobbies including fishing, hiking, and camping, it’s no surprise that Logan prefers to be outdoors. That is why he quickly sought out the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station as a place of employment during his time as a student. 

As Logan puts it, “I believe my time at the Field Station has secured me a chance at an amazing academic future and I would encourage other students to pursue research there.” 

Because of his work at the Field Station, Logan has had opportunities to present research at conferences across Ohio, including at the Ohio Wildlife Rehabilitation Association Conference. You can read more about his experience here.
