was one of 33 students from Susquehanna University who recently presented research at the 27th

of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Established in 1987, the conference
is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research and scholarship
done in partnership with faculty or other mentors. Students experience
firsthand the processes of scholarly exploration and discovery that
characterize academic life. The National Conference on Undergraduate
Research promotes undergraduate research scholarship and
creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors
as a vital component of higher education. The annual conference has
become a national celebration of
undergraduate scholarly activity involving all academic disciplines and
all institutions of higher education.
