ENHP Students Present at Undergraduate Colloquium and Graduate Symposium

This spring 2 undergraduate and 4 graduate works were selected for inclusion in the Undergraduate Research and Creativity Colloquium held April 12, 2012 and the Graduate Research/Creativity Symposium which took place May 2, 2012. 

Undergraduate Research and Creativity Colloquium

The annual Undergraduate Research and Creativity Colloquium offers students the opportunity to present their outstanding projects to the campus community. Sponsored by the Alpha Chi and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Societies, the Colloquium is organized as three concurrent panels of three or more student presenters.

Each year students present their senior theses, academic essays, science experiments, business plans, art works, teaching internships, musical talents, engineering projects, and much more. This celebration of academic excellence is attended by classmates, family members, faculty, and administration.  This year several ENHP undergraduate students participated in the section entitled Life, Learning, and Traveling:
