April 3 Expo to Showcase Undergraduate Work

Research conducted by Western Carolina University students, and samples of students’ fine and performing arts, will be on display Tuesday, April 3, as WCU’s Honors College sponsors the third Undergraduate Expo.

More than 74 student presenters will showcase their work all day, with exhibitions including creative writing, experiments in sciences and social sciences, fine arts projects, research papers, criticism and poster presentations. Three high school students also will participate in the Expo this year by presenting research they conducted through the Upward Bound Math and Science Regional Center.

Presentations by students in WCU’s department of human services will take place Wednesday, April 4.

Thirty-six faculty and staff mentors have been involved in the Expo by helping the students develop their presentations.

Activities on April 3 will end with a banquet for student presenters and their mentors at 6 p.m. in the Grandroom of A.K. Hinds University Center.

All Expo presentations are open to the public. For a detailed schedule of events, contact the Honors College office at (828) 227-7383.
