Strong Results: More Than 80 Students Present Research from Summer Projects

Earlier this month, more than 80 students from all four of the College’s academic divisions presented the results of their summer research projects at a poster session hosted by the Academic Research Committee.

Through the EXCEL Scholars program and honors and independent study programs, students in virtually any major are able to work one-on-one with faculty on high-level research. Approximately 140 students each summer and over 100 students each academic year serve as EXCEL Scholars, a unique program in which students earn a stipend while working collaboratively with faculty.

Students routinely work on projects that result in conference presentations, peer-reviewed journal publications, national scholarships and fellowships, and acceptance into some of the country’s top graduate programs.
