More than 100 University of Arkansas - Fort Smith students converged Friday, April 2 on the Pendergraft Health Sciences Center for the 3rd Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. From studio and performing arts to traditional oral and audio-visual presentations, students presented research on interesting and compelling subjects from across the disciplines.
The Symposium strives to show students the connection between research and education. Under the sponsorship and guidance of faculty members, students offered insight into subjects as diverse as Conflicting Spiritualities in Jane Eyre and Synthesis of Natural Products: Sesquiterpene. Students opened the floor for further audience questions and discussion after each presentation.
Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor Dr. Ray Wallace wrote in his prefatory remarks, “These presentations represent the academic diversity of UA Fort Smith’s programs and the intellectual excellence of our students.”
The application process – as stated on the Symposium’s Web page for students who wish to participate in future symposiums – is outlined below:
