Anthony Rascati
2015

Anthony Rascati did some initial research on his own and found that in 2011, the U.S. Geological Survey discovered potential oil reserves underneath Westfield. He decided to research and write his senior honors thesis on the subject of “fracking,” a type of drilling that uses pressurized liquid to extract oil or gas. Rascati is grateful that Westfield State provides such research opportunities, noting there’s a “common misconception that large research projects only take place in graduate school.”
