Senior Scholars Day 2011
More than 150 Susquehanna University students participated in Senior Scholars Day on April 26.
Senior students presented their research, scholarly or creative projects in the form of poster displays, oral presentations, musical performances or graphic art exhibits.
“Senior Scholars Day is Susquehanna University’s annual, on-campus celebration of the outstanding work of our advanced students,” said Terry Winegar, dean of the School of Natural and Social Sciences. “These presentations represent what can be accomplished with dedicated faculty challenging and supporting hard-working students in close-knit academic communities.”
A sampling of scheduled presentations included “Racial Identity and Experiences of Discrimination,” “Winter Diet of the American Mink in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania,” “A New World Order? An Evaluation of China's Potential to be the Next Hegemon,” and “Feasibility of Micro-wind Turbines for Home Use in Central Pennsylvania.”
“Senior Scholars Day makes clear the value of research and scholarly work to our students,” said Provost Carl Moses. “Our faculty create opportunities for students to engage with their disciplines and experience the infectious thrill of discovery and creation. This day celebrates the achievements of all of our scholars who add substance and vibrancy to our community.”
