Waynesburg University’s fourth annual Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Work Symposium will be held Saturday, April 26, 2014, at 1 p.m. in Alumni Hall. The event is open to the public and will showcase 54 student presenters. The Symposium will feature two oral presentations and 24 poster presentations.
The oral presentation session will begin at 1 p.m., and the poster session will run from 1:45 to 3 p.m. Refreshments will be available throughout both presentations.
Dr. Chad Sethman, assistant professor of biology at Waynesburg University, organized the event. Each year, he sees an increase in participation as students continue to recognize the valuable experience to share their research with the Waynesburg University science community.
“This symposium gives students the opportunity to present the results of their independent research and scholarly work outside of the classroom in a more multi-disciplinary professional setting,” Sethman said.
Topics will cover a variety of research and scholarly work from students of many majors and class years. A sample of the presentations include research about Alzheimer’s, artificial sweeteners, Christian community development, effects of fatigue, food chain length and nutrition awareness.
