Independent Student of the Day

Hayley Beltz is a junior at Kalamazoo College, double majoring in mathematics and physics.

On campus, Hayley is a peer mentor for Kalamazoo College STEM Scholars, a teaching assistant for Intro to Physics courses, and a big sister in Sisters in Science. She also works as a research assistant for a professor in the physics department. Hayley recently participated in a study abroad semester in Aberdeen, Scotland attending the University of Aberdeen.  During the summer, Hayley also worked as an NSF REU Astronomy Intern at the Maria Mitchell Association in Nantucket.

Hayley chose Kalamazoo College as she wanted to attend to a small college close to home, and was further impressed by K's strengths in the sciences and commitment to the liberal arts.

My latest accomplishments

My research group and I submitted a paper we've been working on to the Internationl Joint Conferene on Neural Networks (IJCNN).

Next big goal

My next big goal is to apply for graduate school in physics to begin working towards my PhD.

Favorite place on campus

My favorite place on campus is known as the "math/physics center". It's a common area where people can study and work on homework as well as help/get help. It's also close to the offices of the math and physics professors which is helpful.
