Honors Thesis

“The Honors College and Honors thesis process allowed me to be able to research a topic both in my field and a passion of mine. It had large-scale benefits due to Monarch butterflies being under consideration for endangered species listing and looking at habitats never really studied prior for monarch resources. I was able to conduct my research at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in areas the public normally can’t access. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
