OSAC (aka bugs)

March 10th, 2008

slothThe Oregon State Arthropod Collection lives in Cordley Hall and is part of both the College of Science and the College of Agricultural Science. The curator of the collection is entomologist Chris Marshall, who came to OSU from the Smithsonian and has made great strides to make the collection the largest in the PNW.
