Showcase Nov. 23 to Highlight ASU Student Research
The Angelo State University Graduate School is sponsoring its first Student Research Showcase on Saturday, Nov. 23, to highlight graduate and undergraduate research in a forum that provides for extensive interaction with the public.
The showcase is scheduled 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, in Room 254 of the Junell Center. Participating students will display posters describing their research and will be available to answer questions from the public.
Thirty-five research projects involving 41 students will be on display during the afternoon. ASU Graduate Dean Carol Diminnie said the Student Research Showcase will provide for student interaction with the public and will be especially germane to junior and senior high school students undecided about their future college majors, to individuals who have graduated from college and are considering grad school, and to community members who are interested in research activities on campus. "
The showcase will not only highlight some of the exceptional research done by our students," Diminnie said, "but will also provide a window into the possibilities for people still looking for the perfect discipline for their career." Four junior, 13 senior and 24 graduate students, representing eight departments, are participating in the showcase.
Those departments are animal science, biology, chemistry and biochemistry, management and marketing, mathematics, physical therapy, physics, and psychology and sociology. The research projects have been administered under the direction of 15 ASU faculty members.
Refreshments will be served at the showcase. For more information, contact the Graduate School at 942-2169
