Undergraduates pushing frontiers
of knowledge through research
April 20, 1998

Participating in original research provides an educational experience that fosters independent initiative and creativity. On April 17-18, 47 students from a broad range of disciplines presented the results of their research in the University's first poster session, Frontiers in Undergraduate Research, a forum for students to display their work in a professional setting and receive the recognition they deserve.
