Studying the mutually benePcial relationship between the Azteca ant and Cecropia tree isn’t what Aaron Robinson (’17) had in mind when he came to Francis Marion four years ago, but then that was before he’d been to FMU’s Wildsumaco Biological Research Station in Ecuador or spent time with the faculty in the university’s highly regarded Department of Biology. Time passes and now Robinson is on his way to grad school in entomology, where he’ll pursue his newfound love of the Azteca and its symbiotic partner. A trip to Wildsumaco, and the guidance of FMU faculty, who opened his mind to the excitement of real scientiPc research, put him there. “Those guys (in Biology) were great,” says Robinson. “But the professors here are all easy to Pnd, easy to talk to. You show a little interest in their class and they’ll show a lot of interest in you. It (FMU) is what college is all about.”
