Not even a week into the job and the new Black Hills State University president, Dr. Tom Jackson Jr., encountered a whole different world when he visited the Sanford Underground Research Facility (Sanford Lab) to visit with faculty and researchers about their work nearly a mile underground in the former Homestake Mine near Lead.
Black Hills State University student Rachel Williams, physical science major from Spearfish, and Madison Jilek, recent Spearfish High School graduate who will enroll at BHSU in the fall, were two of the 10 students awarded special scholarships to study underground science for five weeks this summer.
Black Hills State University students in Dr. Wei Song’s integrated marketing communication class this semester had the opportunity to blend theory and their coursework into a practical learning experience. However, their projects also had a larger purpose – to make a contribution to the surrounding community.
Black Hills State University will host a public presentation on the Sanford Underground Research Facility Wednesday, April 30 at noon in the Jacket Legacy Room of the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union.
