The K.C. Environmental Science Centre has an oversized presence on campus. It's a place to study, have a meeting, take classes, have a snack, or simply hang out.  Many students may not realize however, that the K.C. Irving Centre is also a beehive of research activity, and the home base of Acadia's Arthur Irving Scholars in Environmental Studies.  First year ESST/Community Development student and Arthur Irving Scholar Sarah Lavallée, provided readers of the Athenaeum with a bit of the history of the Irving Centre and the scholarships, as well as a brief description of the research journeys of Hannah Machat and Rachel Clarke, two senior Arthur Irving Scholars.
