Undergraduate Research Experiences Symposium

The symposium featured 22 student researchers alongside their poster presentations, which encompassed the fields of Biology, Ecology, Health Science, Microbiology, Psychology, Public Policy, Social Science, and Sustainability, collegewide.  Student presenters were interviewed by judges and participants throughout the evening, and many expressed how delighted they were to present their research projects. Medallions on blue ribbons were awarded to student presenters who earned high scores in several academic categories and to research faculty who mentor student researchers.  Additionally, certificates of recognition and digital badges were presented to all student researchers, as these represent valuable inclusions in resumes and university applications.
