Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Posted by

Finding a balance between the demands of academics and athletics is never easy for a collegiate student-athlete but Calvin College cross country runners Jake Christiansen and Ben Lewis have found a way to do just that.

Earlier this fall, the two Calvin student-athletes led a Calvin mathematics department colloquium detailing their summer research efforts under the guidance of Calvin mathematics professor Dr. Todd Kapitula. Christiansen and Lewis were able to study under Kapitula during the summer months thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation.
