PULLMAN, Wash. — First-year students enrolled in Washington State University’s nationally recognized Freshman Seminar Program will present their semester-long research projects from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5, in Lighty Student Services Building, Room 260.

The 26 research projects are on subjects ranging from John F. Kennedy to the connection between MTV and image. Student researchers will be on-hand to discuss their projects. The university president, V. Lane Rawlins, also will make an appearance.

The Freshman Seminar Program is a two-credit course offered to first-year students designed to teach them how to learn, rather than just study, said Sharon Singleton, program coordinator for the Student Advising and Learning Center. The program was awarded the Commission for Academic Support in High Education Exemplary Programs Award and the American College Personal Association Excelling Student Program Award in 2002.

The symposium is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the SALC at (509) 335-7421.
