Research Day Gives Students Time to Shine

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Research Day 2008 is fast approaching and will show off the efforts of undergraduate students putting forth that extra energy into their studies. Their work will be displayed and demonstrated throughout the campus on Thursday, March 6, and everyone is invited to take a few minutes to take a look at the exhibits.

Students will compete against each other on Research Day, Thursday, March 6, and the campus community is invited to attend. Winners of this event will present their prized research on Thursday, April 3, at Big Night at the Townsend Center.

Research Day offers an opportunity for students to compete with each other and win cash prizes for their work. An interdisciplinary panel of judges will select the winning projects from six academic areas: the arts, business, education, the humanities, sciences and social sciences. Winners will present their work on stage at the Townsend Center on Big Night on Thursday, April 3.
