Quotes

..."These contaminants are found in everyday 'down the drain' products like shampoo and antibacterial soap," said McDermott. "A prime example would be microbeads found in facial cleansers. They are easily left unfiltered in waste water treatment facilities and run off into nearby water systems. These nanoparticles can then absorb toxins and are consumed by fish or other aquatic organisms, thus leading to the bioaccumulation of said toxins."
...Peter Steinfeld, associate dean of faculty. "An academic tone with an eye to service, engagement and action is set right from the start with this competition. Students connect with their professors, staff, upper-class students and their peers, and it's a great way to begin the semester and welcome new, incoming students to campus."
...David Evans, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty. "We are committed to student success through small classes, intentional mentoring and co-curricular programs that help students gain a real edge in our highly competitive world."
