WSU academia present research findings Dec. 4

New members of the Washington State University academic community will reveal their research findings during the Freshman Seminar Research Symposium on Thursday, Dec. 4, from 3-5 p.m. in the Samuel H. Smith Center for Undergraduate Education, Room 502.

The researchers, all first-year students enrolled in the university’s Freshman Seminar Program, have worked under the mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students as well as teaching and library faculty. The 22 projects, a culmination of research and analysis, will be presented using multimedia technologies.

The Freshman Seminar Program’s excellence has received national acclaim. In Fall 2001, it was awarded the Commission for Academic Support in Higher Education Exemplary Programs Award as well as the American College Personal Association Excellent Student Program Award. In 1999, the freshman seminar was nominated for recognition by the John Templeton Foundation for “educating to foster personal and civic responsibility.”

The Dec. 4 research symposium is free and open to the public. Student researchers will be on hand to discuss their projects. For more information, contact the WSU Student Advising and Learning Center at (509) 335-7212.
