On Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, 75 primatologists converged on the college’s campus for the fourth Northeastern Evolutionary Primatologists (NEEP) meeting. This marks the first time NEEP was held outside of the NY metropolitan area, and the first time it has been held at a primarily undergraduate, liberal arts institution. A keynote address by Dr. Julie Teichroeb, University of Toronto, kicked off the event Friday evening, with a full day Saturday of presentations and posters. NEEP aims to give students, both graduate and undergraduate, an opportunity to present their research in a relatively small venue and interact with prominent researchers in the field. The meeting was hosted by Sue Margulis, professor of ABEC and biology. Margulis’s research students, “Team Ape,” were on hand to volunteer and present.
