Undergraduate students show research prowess

From medical research to investigations of literary theory, undergraduate students are conducting serious scholarly work with faculty mentors. On May 6, President Mary Ellen Mazey presented awards to some of the top presenters from the recent Northwest Ohio Undergraduate Symposium for Research and Scholarship.

"What we find about students today is that it's all about being involved and being engaged, so undergraduate research and creativity projects are what it's all about," Mazey said. "It's the future of this country and the future of higher education."
