Shari Hoch (Mathematics, BS) was one of nine college students accepted into a National Science Foundation-sponsored REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) hosted this summer at Bryn Mawr College.

The MathILy-EST program is an eight-week intensive summer research experience for students who “excelled in inquiry-based learning classes” and “want to try research in mathematics but are too early in [their] college career to have the formal prerequisites that most research programs require.”

Hoch, a graduate of Greensburg-Salem High School, just completed her second year in the Cook Honors College at IUP.
