WOOSTER, Ohio, April 20, 2012 – Two hundred and sixty five
students will share the results of their senior research projects on Friday,
April 27 during the College of Wooster’s annual Senior Research Symposium. Oral
and poster presentations will begin at 9 a.m. and continue throughout the day
in more than a dozen venues around campus. All events are open to the public.
The Senior Research Symposium is the only day in the academic
year when the college cancels classes, so the entire campus community can come
together in celebration of mentored undergraduate research, the cornerstone of
a Wooster education.
Several students will share digital and multimedia exhibits
they developed as part of their projects from 9 to 11 a.m., while other students
and their faculty mentors will discuss the nature of their collaborative
relationship from 11 a.m. to noon, both in Andrews Library. Studio art majors
will display and discuss their works in the Sussel Gallery of the College of
Wooster Art Museum from 1 to 3 p.m.
The presentations being made throughout the day cover a vast
array of topics, with something to pique almost any interest. A few examples:
