CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Wilson College students will present the results of their undergraduate research at Wilson’s third annual Student Research Day on Friday, April 27. See the full schedule here.
The public is invited to join Wilson students, faculty, staff, and administrators at all events.
Thirty-three seniors will present their work, which was produced in conjunction with faculty advisers, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Brooks Complex auditorium and Warfield Hall’s Allen Auditorium. Nineteen students will also share their work graphically in a poster session to be held in the Brooks Complex from 1 to 2:15 p.m. An art opening is also scheduled.
“Student Research Day was created several years ago in recognition of the importance of student research and accomplishments,” said Dr. Mary Hendrickson, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty. “The research demonstrates the high level of achievement by the students as they complete their quest for bachelor’s degrees.”
Those who attended previous years’ research days have been impressed by the sophistication of the research and the quality of student presentations, Hendrickson said.
