Blue Dot: Marine Biology at Cal Poly Humboldt: plus, what's in a name (change?)
Host Dave Schlom visits with folks from the newly renamed Cal Poly Humboldt about the marine biology programs there. With a long tradition of marine sciences there (Stephen Hillenburg, creator of Sponge Bob Square Pants was an alum), the Telonicher Marine Lab and R/V Coral Sea based in Trinidad, CA, make learning about the ocean on the stunning north coast about as good as it gets.
Guests include Rick Zechman, Director of Marine Operations, Marine Biology Professor Sean F. Craig, and student researcher Juhi LaFuente who talks about what it is actually like to study marine sciences at Cal Poly Humboldt.
In the final segment, Dave talks to Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jenn Capps about the name change from Humboldt State University to the added prestige of becoming one of the three Cal Poly campuses in the state.
