Record Number of Honors Program Students Complete Honors Theses, Present Research at Bi-Annual Honors Forum
May 08, 2020
A record number of nine students are completing an honors thesis this year as part of the University Honors Program’s curriculum. Seven students presented their faculty-led, original research at the bi-annual University Honors Program Research and Creative Scholarship Forum on May 6, in partial fulfillment of their honors thesis requirements. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, last week’s forum was conducted virtually for the first time. The other two students presented their research at last semester’s forum on Dec. 4, 2019.
This semester’s virtual forum showcased the research by students from three different colleges and six academic majors. Many of the students’ research projects were supported by a University Honors Program Grant for Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship.
May 6’s presenters were: BreAnne Servoss Cook (Apparel, Textiles and Design, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and Theatre Arts, College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences), Ren Dimico (Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, College of Science), Natasha Herbenson (Microbiology, College of Science), Romana Hyde (Biochemistry, College of Science, and Psychology, College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences), Caitlin C. Klaeui (Animal and Veterinary Science, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences), Samuel A. Myers (Physics and Mathematics, College of Science) and Matthew Young (Physics and Mathematics, College of Science).
