The University hosted its 16th annual Celebration of Student Scholars in the first floor atrium of The Loyola Science Center Wednesday.
The annual event brings the student body together to recognize the achievements of students across diverse fields including biology, chemistry, physics and psychology as student researchers. The event honors not only undergraduate work, but also the work of graduate students here at The University. Submitted work includes work both done here as part of partnerships between faculty and students, as well as work done by students at a variety of summer research internships.
The event, hosted by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, offers three ways for students to present their work. The
traditional method of presentation is through physical medium, in other words, posters.
“The Celebration of Student Scholars is a great opportunity for students to display the results of their research in a friendly environment amongst their peers and faculty. The breadth of topics covered can help to bring together student researchers from different disciplines such as biology, psychology, engineering, and occupational therapy,” said Matthew Reynolds, sophomore biology and biophysics major and presenter at the event today.
Some students also elect to present their work orally in a formal presentation. Presentations were hosted in the PNC Auditorium in Loyola Science Center 133. The last type of display is called a creative display. This option is often taken by students with a more interactive research topic that they are presenting on.
The diversity of projects presented today showcased the diversity of interests found among our student body. It is always important to take the time to celebrate the achievements of our community, and honor the professors who supported them through their hard work and dedication.
