Spirit of inquiry, discovery on view at undergraduate research symposium

BGSU students demonstrated once again this year that undergraduate research is thriving at the University. The second annual Symposium on Undergraduate Research April 20 drew faculty, staff and visiting members of the Ohio Board of Regents to view and discuss about 50 projects currently under way.

“It is truly inspiring to see and to hear firsthand the scholarly creative activities of our undergraduate students,” said Dr. John Farver, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research. “It speaks volumes to the caliber of our students and the dedication of our faculty mentors. We more than doubled—from 32 to 69—the number of student participants in this the second annual symposium, and I anticipate continued growth as more students take advantage of the many opportunities for undergraduate research and creative activities at BGSU.”

Winning the Sigma Xi Outstanding Presentation individual awards this year were Laren Conklin, Debbi Maury and James Verhoff.
