During his welcoming remarks for the 8th annual Undergraduate Research Day, Randall Rogan, co-interim dean of the college, told those gathered they would be impressed.
With 133 posters by 146 student presenters, topics ranged from epigenetic factors involved in chronological aging, to exploration of the doctor-patient relationship, tomato mutants, hydro power in Nepal, exercise desks and sonar-assisted human navigation.
Research Day, held Friday, Oct. 24 in Benson University Center during Family Weekend, is a highlight of the academic year, showcasing the personal interaction and intellectual exchange between students and faculty.
Rogan described it as a “hallmark of who we are and what we’re all about.”
The event is sponsored by the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Center (URECA), which promotes and celebrates mentored scholarship.
