The Hamilton College Chapter of Sigma Xi, the scientific research society, recently elected 20 students and two alumni to associate membership and three faculty colleagues to full membership. Honorees were initiated and celebrated at a dinner in the atrium of the Science Center. Nominators spoke briefly about their nominees, and everyone enjoyed a broad view of collaborative science. 

Students elected from the Class of 2008 are: Marco Allodi, Kristin Alongi, Jordan Barone, Amy Barrows, Dan Campbell, Dan Chandler, Matt Chuff, Ruth Duggan, Michael Gregg, Greg Hartt, Drew Linsley, Kurtis Magee, Jon Milgrom, Nguyen Thi Thao Nguyen, Amanda Salisburg, Evan Savage, Nicole Tetreault, Jon Wexler and Sarah Wiener. Two members of the Class of 2007 were elected in absentia: Liz Gilliams and Lauren Wilson. Faculty initiates are Mark Oakes, Ashleigh Smythe and Natalia Connolly, an associate member who was promoted to full member. 

The Hamilton College Chapter includes members of the science faculties of Colgate University and Utica College and this year one of the initiates was Ewa Szymanska, a recent graduate of Utica College. 

Sigma Xi facilitates a variety of activities that support scientific research. Best known are the award-winning interdisciplinary journal, American Scientist, and the Grants-in-Aid of Research program that has awarded funds to graduate and undergraduate students in a highly competitive pool of applications for 87 years.
