Senior Honors Presentations set for April 26-28

Honors students will present their final Senior Honors projects in person on Tuesday-Thursday, April 26-28 from 3:15-6 p.m. both days in Herbster Chapel.

Through the Honors 455 course, students have worked with a faculty mentor to deepen their understanding of a topic of a compelling interest in their major. Their presentations will outline their methodology, research and theoretical analysis in layman's terms. Senior Honors projects are semester-long independent research projects designed to showcase the work of Honors Program students.

Good luck to everyone!
