Students travel to Duke University to participate in research symposium
On Sat., Nov. 17, a group of students and faculty from the Division of Arts and Sciences attended the State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research & Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) at Duke University in Durham, N.C. SNCURCS is an annual symposium that showcases multidisciplinary undergraduate research and creative scholarship from all institutes of higher education across the state.
Students presented their findings on a variety of research topics ranging from "Given Names and Their Effects on Self-Perception" to "The Identification of Bisphenol A on Thermal Papers and Finger Residues.â€
According to Samantha Jarmusch, this was an excellent opportunity to grow academically in a research-driven environment.
â€œSNCURCS allowed me to present my research to professors and students from other universities across the state, and we were able to discuss their research as well. These discussions raised new ideas that will allow me to further my research. This symposium was a worthwhile experience, and I look forward to participating next year.â€
